Is a foundation needed for these barns?

Our barns are built on top of pressure treated 6″x6″ timbers and are designed to sit directly on the ground. In most cases, the foundation is not required unless your local municipality would require it.

For a shedrow with an overhang or a modular barn, we recommend setting the structure on cement pillars. This prevents the barn from settling unevenly over time due to the freezing and thawing of the ground. For more information see our pages on Site Preparation.
