Barn Kit Questions

DC Structures has Answers

Building your dream structure might seem complicated, but DC Structures makes the process as streamlined as possible. Here are some frequently asked questions that you might find helpful.

  • What's Included in the price of one of your kits?

    The listed prices on our website and in our digital catalog representing a starting price for a highly complete materials package. Each kit comes with all structural materials, siding, trim, exterior doors and windows, roof sheathing, connection hardware and more. Each of our models has a complete materials list detailing exactly what’s included.

  • What's not included?

    Our kits do not include some components that are best acquired locally: roofing material, concrete, and nails. For our garage kits, overhead doors are also not included. Our kits do not include electrical or plumbing fixtures.

  • What kinds of siding come with your barns?

    All of our models come standard with Douglas fir tongue and groove siding, cedar board and batten siding, or James Hardie composite siding products. Check the materials list for the model you’re interested in.

  • Can you build it for me?

    DC Structures prepares design and materials packages for construction by local builders around the country. We have a network of preferred builders with the skills and experience required to assemble our post and beam structures.

    Our design and construction partner, DC Builders, may be able to provide you with a construction quote. However, DC Builders can only take on a limited number of projects each year. Most of our clients plan to manage their own project or work with a local contractor.

  • Can I make changes to the design?

    Our customization process can accommodate a wide range of upgrades and alterations to your kit design. However, if you have a vision that’s radically different from one of our pre-designed structures, consider the custom design process at DC Builders.

  • Can I add doors and windows?

    In most cases, yes!

  • How do you deliver your kits?

    Our kits are delivered to your location on flatbed trucks on a date of your choosing. The client or their builder are responsible for offloading the package.

  • How soon can you deliver it?

    Our kits can be delivered as soon as eight weeks after you place your deposit, but for residential structures we recommend placing your order six months before you plan to begin construction to accommodate a collaborative design process, engineering, and local permitting.

  • Will my kit come with engineered drawings?

    Your standard package is pre-engineered to comply with most county and state requirements. If necessary, we will supply a state specific wet stamp for an additional fee. Request a building compliance checklist from your project specialist for reference when discussing with county officials.

  • What is 'post and beam' construction?

    Post and beam construction is a building method that relies on heavy timbers rather than dimensional lumber. Buildings designed using this method are relatively fast to assemble due to fewer constraints on structural requirements. That said, post and beam buildings are known for their sturdy craftsmanship and are often the only structures that remain erect in the aftermath of natural disasters. The style lends itself to dramatically open interiors while honoring the rustic appearance of exposed timber.
