1886 Delaware Carriage Barn Plans


View and print measured drawings of a Carpenter Gothic style carriage barn, built near New Castle, Delaware in 1886


Greenlawn Carriage Barn, Middletown, Deleware


This multi-purpose barn included stables, shelters for carriages and wagons, a tack room, a corn crib and a hay loft. It was an all-in-one outbuilding for the Brady family home.


Built at the height of the Victorian era, this barn is an example of Carpenter Gothic design. The builders made a fairly standard vernacular wagon barn a little more fashionable with the addition of a steep-roof front gable and some gingerbread trim.

The six-page drawing set that you can print includes a floor plan, a loft plan, exterior elevations and building sections. Use the link below to download either 8 1/2 x 11 or larger scale prints of the seven-page plan set.

Greenlawn Carriage Barn  These plans will print on 8 1/2x11 paper on most computer printers. Ledger and larger size prints can also be produced from the same file by using a large format printer. If you don't have one of those, a copy shop should be able to provide you with prints.
