Better Barns Hardware & Plans is a small family business located in Collinsville, Connecticut. We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary in December. Our company offers a wide range of unique, high quality products for personal and professional construction projects. We specialize in sliding door hardware, plans to build your own barn or shed, and accessories for your building, including window sash.
The distinctive aesthetic of our reproduction hardware is inspired by authentic, 19th century North American design styles. We utilize local manufacturers to provide eye-catching hardware and architectural designs to our customers. All of the products in our sliding door line are produced and finished here in New England.
People who purchase our hardware range from do-it-yourself handymen and aspiring home renovators to professional carpenters, architecture firms, and film production studios. Whatever the scope of your project might be interior or exterior, we're confident that you'll find the tools to make it a reality somewhere in our catalog.
Our storehouse is open to visitors, but since the majority of our customers are placing orders from afar, we do not operate a traditional "shop", and visits to our Collinsville location are through appointment only-- Please call or e-mail us to schedule a day and time for your visit.
Here are some photos of barns and sheds that customers have built using our plan designs. See our "Hall of Fame" pages for more. If you have pictures of your barn or a sliding door or doors and would like to share, please email us here.
Above are photos customers have sent to us of the barns they have built using our plans.
Better Barns plans aren't limited to traditional barns. Our designs could be used to build a writer's studio, woodworking or hobby shop, potting shed, music practice room, or pool cabana. Our buildings are tastefully proportioned and architecturally pleasing. They lend themselves to a diverse range of uses, limited only by your imagination.
Better Barns Hardware and Plans products have been featured in: Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Better Homes and Gardens book Sheds and Gazebos, Popular Mechanics, Today's Homeowner, Mother Earth News and the book Building a Shed.
