Ravenna 16 ft. Wide Story Building with Dormer


Two story kit with lots of space

The Ravenna offers a great amount of space both upstairs and downstairs. Designed so there is as much open area as possible the Ravenna will make a great workshop or use for lots of storage. The interior can be insulated and finished to suit your specific needs. With 7ft. 1in. of headroom at center of the 2nd floor loft you’ll have plenty of room for more work area or perhaps an office space.

Four insulated windows with shutters are included along with the ‘L’ shaped staircase and carriage style barn doors. The dormer windows measure 32in. x 36in. The lower wall windows are 36in. x 36in. Shutters can be painted the color of your choice. Paint not included. Stairs can be placed in either of the back wall corners. Doors include transom windows and measure 8ft. wide x 7ft. high.

If desired additional windows and doors can be installed during construction. The gable ends are designed to accommodate a single window at either end up to 44in. x 47in. Purchase these separately from a local home center.

Wall construction is 2x4s spaced 16in. o.c. and include pressure treated bottom plates. Trusses are 2×6 spaced 24in. o.c. Building can be constructed on a foundation that meets your requirements. This can be a cement slab, over a basement, wood floor, post and beam, etc. Homeowner purchases material to build floor and foundation separately. Check with your local building code requirements to determine what is permissible.

Shingles not included. Paint by homeowner.

Stairs Included

The staircase is now enclosed with a second interior wall.

Our custom staircase can be installed along in either corner of the back wall opposite the doors. The upper landing is centered to the roof peak so as to provide maximum headroom when ascending the stairs.

Our factory model required 2-4 people over a period of approximately 10 days to construct. Time to build depends on skill, number of people helping and effort toward completion. Take into consideration any modifications such as adding additional windows and doors or finishing the interior as these will require more time to complete.
