The benefits of adding a barn to your agricultural property are many. With a new barn in place, you’ll have room for animals, supplies, equipment, and more – all in a single structure. Whether you don’t currently have a barn or are running out of room in the one you do have, this is an exciting project that can change how your property works.
With that said, everything has a cost. Barns aren’t free, so you’ll need to figure out your available budget for this project and how it lines up with the average cost of a new barn. We’ll take a closer look at that topic in this article to help you understand the variables and what you can expect when you start shopping.
If you’d like to take a look at what we have available at Carport Kingdom, the best place to start is with our Build & Price tool. Not only can you design a custom barn to include all of the features you desire, but you can also submit that design for a free quote. And if you need help, just contact us, and we’ll be glad to assist.
A Wide Range of Prices
As you might imagine, in this article, we cannot nail down the exact cost of your new barn. There are simply too many variables involved in this process to precisely provide a cost for a new barn (we’ll talk more about those variables in the next section). For a general guideline, you might pay as little as $15 – $20 per square foot of barn space on the low end, while the high end could easily reach $100 per square foot or more.
Using those numbers as a starting point, you could do some math and find that a relatively modest barn may only cost you around $2,000, while a large structure may rise well beyond $10,000. In the end, you can’t really start planning and budgeting for this project until you get more specific information about the barn you want to build and exactly how much it will cost.
The Most Important Variables
Two primary variables will impact the cost of your barn. First, of course, is the size. A bigger barn will always cost more than a smaller barn when all other factors are equal. With that said, you don’t necessarily want to build the smallest possible barn that will serve your needs, as spending a bit more now could prove to be a wise move in the future. If you can afford to slightly “overbuild” your barn now, you might avoid needing to build another one just a few years down the line.
In addition to size, the material you choose for your barn plays a major role in the cost. Wood barns are traditional and can be seen on agricultural land from coast to coast, but they are far more expensive than metal. By going with a metal barn, you will save money on the construction of the building, and you will also save over the coming years because that building will require minimal maintenance. Metal barns last long, look great, and aren’t a fire risk. At this point, it’s hard to see why anyone would consider a wood barn structure when metal comes with so many obvious advantages.
Financing is a Possibility
Assuming you do decide to go with a metal barn, you will likely be pleasantly surprised at the price tag that comes with such a project. With that said, it can still be difficult to come up with the money for the purchase all at once, which is why Carport Kingdom works with a variety of lenders to make financing an option for our customers. If you are interested in building a new barn as soon as possible and will need to use financing to make that happen, one of our partners would be happy to assist with that process.
