How do you build a Pole barn style RV/Horse Barn using HD Arch?

Recommended Posts

 I can figure out how to set up the walls and ceiling to represent a Pole barn style. I have a feeling I need the professional one but that is out of the question as this is for personal use only and we only have this one structure left to do. I did see via this forum that I could use the railing function, but cannot figure out how to do walls. See below Image of what I have drawn so far (Attached) which is very limited and what I need inside (Attached). Post need to be 12' on center and rafter are 6' on center building is 16' tall. Does anyone know how to do this with the HD Architectural program I currently have?

*** I see you said Architectural ***

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Please post images directly -- no need to make a PDF of an image. This makes it easier for others as an image shows in the forum.

I'd start with a search of the Knowledge Base (linked above) for barn.

I got the post and beam option set, How do I add metal siding to the outside? I know how to do walls with metal siding but not post and beam style. Plus I need to add some 2x4 bracing in-between. the 12' OC posts.

I have looked at every post on the forum, no one answers the question. Picture above is just practice.

I did a quick forum search and found this thread where the siding question was answered by 2 people.

 

If you need help with searching, search my YouTube channel (link in my sig) for search.
