How Much Does a Barn Cost?

The barn cost can vary and is estimated depending on certain factors such as:

  • The size of the barn you want
  • Preparation of the site
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical systems
  • Detail work

It is a good idea to come up with a budget for the entire project. Mr. Build will meet with you to discuss everything from the site preparation to the licensing and permits. This will allow you to see exactly what you can afford to suit your budget.

Foundation for Dairy Barns

The foundation for a dairy barn must be level and secure for the entire stability of the building, and Chilliwack building codes will affect the requirements of the foundation. Many barns in the area have a poured concrete foundation. We make sure your foundation is installed properly so that your barn can withstand all types of weather from snow to ice, rain, and wind.

Cattle Barn Structure

Just as the foundation of a barn must be stable enough to brave the elements, the structure must be strong enough as well. In order for the livestock to produce at their best, the structure must provide them with firm footing to avoid injury. It must offer easy access to water and food, and a place to rest. Sometimes people cut corners to save on construction, but sacrificing the comfort of the livestock can result in lower production that can last many years.
