Likely the most distinctive feature of a barn is the split-level design of the doors. Known as Dutch-style barn doors, these doors are as attractive as they are functional, plus they look and function quite well not only on a barn, but on a shed, garage, storage building or even on rustic houses. They're also a lot of fun and far less expensive to build than what you would pay to buy them in a store of if you had a door manufacturer design and create them for your installation.
In this set of free woodworking plans, learn how to build a simple yet remarkably strong set of Split-Level Barn Doors
