Can the walls and roof be insulated? What are the options for insulation? Thanks!

Asked by ManOfScience December 1, 2018

Yes, the Richmond can be insulated. Check with your local Home Depot for types of insulation for 2x4 wall framing and 2x6 trusses. Richard Best Barns

Can we get these buildings like prefab homes. with the walls already assembled. ready to stand up...

Asked by JeanneBeanne April 8, 2018

The Richmond DIY kit from Best Barns must be assembled in the field. This is because each homeowner wants differing window and door styles, quantity and locations in the walls. During construction the homeowner frames the rough-ins prior to applying siding. Also pre-fab walls cannot be shipped LTL common carrier. Richard Best Barns

Does this come assembled or is it a kit? What is included in the price?

Asked by HandyLady November 4, 2017

The Richmond is a kit which the homeowner is required to frame and assemble in the field. Some cutting is required. Trusses are pre-cut ready to assemble and gable ends are pre-built in 4 ft. sections. You will need to purchase entry ways, windows, paint, shingles, drip edge, venting, etc. Also a floor system will need to be built. This can be a cement slab or wood floor. Richard Best Barns
