    seeking to find any old plans/blueprints for small barns (12x20 is the general size in mind) that we can use to build one of our own this coming Spring. We'll house Alpaca, chickens and maybe a goat at first. Looking for wood structures only. Does anyone out there have any plans they'd be willing to share with us?

    Moose... I built a 16 x 24 barn last year using these plans. The finished cost after sheet metal roofing and rough-cut barnboard siding was $2,500 complete.
    Of course I was the free labor, but for that price... ya' can't go wrong!

    Good luck!

    Yup. That's the one, kitty. One of the best sites on the web IMO.
