Terry’s Custom Features

Terry has his own custom features he created when he started Better Built Barns!

What Terry Created:

  • He has added 2×6’s to the door centers from the kick plate to center of doors and to the top.
  • 2×4 door support for added strength to each door where they meet and close with his own custom cutout handles. All crafted into one continuous piece.
  • Support blocks added to the exterior side wall under the roof flare to keep the 2×6’s in place.

What Makes us Better Built/ What we do Different:

  • We use metal gussets on both sides of rafters for extra strength hold. The rafters are constructed within a jig on a solid foundation.
