30x40 Two Story Pole Barn Home
Inexpensive 30' x 40' House (2400 sq-ft)
APB engineers homes and barns with living quarters for ultimate functionality. This two story home is an efficient and flexible option allowing a clear span space inside. For various styles of buildings sold see our page on pole barn kits.

Design Criteria

This design features floor trusses on the second floor which means that interior walls on the first floor can be present or not, ideal for that 30' wide living room. We provide engineered structural plans nationwide.

Our structures are designed with energy heel trusses. These trusses have 8" heels to provide sufficient height from eave to eave for blown insulation in your ceiling.

Another feature we recommend is the use of sheathing on the roof to reduce noise from rainfall on the second floor. Want to add a nice look? You can incorporate scissor trusses in the building design to achieve a cathedral ceiling.

These homes incorporate 2x8 girts fit between the posts book-shelved, with 1 1/2" of the girt protruding out past the post to align with the truss supports and grade board below. This makes framing a snap and provides a deep cavity to fill with insulation and still achieve an air gap between the siding and insulation.

Home Options

We sell the building shell and various structural components like second floor truss or joist systems.

If you want to build your own then we can provide a kit tailored to your specific needs.
