We build almost anywhere in the Central Texas area including the cities of Abilene, Fort Worth, Waco, San Angelo, Austin, and of course our home town, Brownwood.

Lofted Barn Austin Texas


Building A Lofted Barn in Austin Texas.

We build many lofted barns as well as other style portable
storage sheds in the Austin Texas area…
Many are simply our standard design while others are a bit
more custom..

Since we are a small family owned business and build all our
buildings on site, adding a custom touch to your building
is no problem.

Lofted Barn Austin Texas

Here we started with our standard 10×20 lofted barn.

As you can see in the picture above, we added a treated
wood ramp and 2- windows.  The ramp allowed easier access
to items like lawn mowers, bicycles, etc.  Windows are always
a welcome addition for light and ventilation.

Lofted Barn Austin Texas Inside Additions.

Lofted Barn Austin Texas inside additions

We made several additions to this lofted barn.

First we joined the front and rear lofts together with
24″ side lofts.  They really are quite handy…  This is a
really great design allowing people to easily access anything
in the loft from a step ladder.  No one wants to have to get up
in the loft and crawl around on all 4’s to find something…

We also added a really nice work bench to the rear
of the building.  Our customer said he wanted someplace
to tinker with little projects…

Lofted Barn Austin Texas shelving

Finally we added 2- 16″ shelves along one side
for additional storage…

Many customers are reluctant to add options to a
building because of a misconception that it will drive
the price way up.

Here at Build With Jerry that is usually not the case.

Options usually do not add that much additional time to
a project and therefore does not significantly add to
the price.

This 10 x 20 lofted barn complete with all options we
have talked about in this post, came it at the very
competitive price of only $3830.00.

Many of our competitors charge more just for
a standard 10 x 20 lofted barn with no additions.

If you have any questions about our buildings, find
answers to the most ask questions HERE.

Follow This Link for complete pricing.  We offer different
styles and many sizes.

We look forward to helping you with your Lofted Barn in
Austin Texas, or anywhere else in the Central Texas area.

We recently built this lofted barn with an attached cover on both sides near Abilene Texas.

Note the beautiful Texas sunset in the background…

Custom Portable Shed

We started out with our standard 12×20 lofted barn and attached a 10×20 cover to each side.  This produced a great amount of storage inside the building as well as a nice place for ATV’s, boats, trailers, etc under the covered areas.

We can easily customize any of our building to meet your needs.

Thats kinda how I feel about tiny homes… I was
building tiny homes when tiny homes were called
cabins… LOL

Greenhouse in Brownwood,Texas


Recent Greenhouse in Brownwood,Texas

It has been a while since I built a greenhouse, so it
was fun building something I do not build everyday.

Greenhouse in Brownwood,Texas image

Everyone seems to build greenhouses a little different
and over the years I have adopted what I feel is the best
ideas from all I have seen…

The floor is basically a portable treated wood deck.  This
allows water to pass through the spaces between the boards
so you never have to worry about where you get water.

All other lumber in the greenhouse is treated wood, which
holds up really well in a moist environment.

I always include shelving and hanging rods inside.

The door is a standard 36″ storm door, which I feel is
superior to the shop built doors you find on most greenhouses.

If you would like for us to build your Greenhouse in
Brownwood Texas, or almost anywhere else, give us
a call at 325-642-5102.
