Benefits of a 3-roller-door barn

Ideal for storage

Whether you need large open space, a complete structure fitted out with internal stalls, or cabinets to store tools and other equipment, this type of an American barn makes an ideal storage choice. The 3 roller doors of this barn are usually two smaller doors and one taller door – ideal for parking tall boats, trucks, caravans, and farm equipment. The easily accessible and massive storage capacity of this shed means you can use it as a triple garage, a workshop, or even storage for those treasured vintage items you're not using but just can't get rid of.


Wondering if you could add extra rooms inside your barn? The mid-section of an American barn with 3 roller doors is high enough to accommodate a mezzanine floor, which means you can add a room in it. Maximize the space inside your barn and turn it into a unique accommodation option, a perfect holiday house to get away from it all, or simply extra working or storage space – this barn type gives you the perfect mix of style and functionality. We’ve even seen this type of shed fully decked out into spacious family homes! Whatever your dream shed is, talk to your local experts and see how they can help make it happen.

Maximum ventilation

No matter where you are, the high ceilings of American barns assist with ventilation even on the hottest of days. These barns are designed so air can flow freely through the structure, so the interior stays cool and airy even during the summer months (and still cosy during winter). This is one of the reasons why these barns make amazing horse stables. With their high central sections, they have a spacious feel, good air flow and easy access to horse stalls in the lower sides.

Highly customisable

Get the look you want for your barn, with a range of options to customise your structure to your style. From its dimensions, size, and colours, you can choose how you want your barn to be! You can also choose to add partition walls to section off your barn, or install windows, glass sliding doors, and more, depending on your needs.

American Barn with 3 Roller Doors FAQs

Q: What's the difference between a stable and a barn?

A: Generally speaking, a stable is a building with an interior fit-out used to house horses. A barn, on the other hand, is a general term for the building, and they may be used to store machinery or equipment. You can certainly build a barn and fit out the interior to any purpose you need, including a stable.

Q: Why are barns so high?

A: Barns are typically high pitched to allow rainwater to run off faster and improve air circulation. The high pitched roof prevents rainwater from pooling and potentially causing damage. The resulting high ceiling allows for good ventilation, making them perfect for housing animals.

Q: What wind rating is my shed?

A: All buildings are supplied in accordance with the AS4055 for your area. Fair Dinkum Sheds can supply engineered ShedSafe accredited sheds to suit all areas of Australia.

Q: Does my building require maintenance?

A: To maintain your materials warranty, basic care and maintenance is required.
