Open car barn garages compliment & add value to your home
Passmores range of open barn garages (or car barns as they are often called) are as visually striking, strong and solid as our other wooden garages and outbuildings, just with one side open.
They are an ideal improvement to any property, offering shelter from the weather for vehicles and classic cars, as well as ample storage for bulky items like garden machinery or sports equipment.
Whether you order your car barn as a single bay, double bay or triple bay structure, with space for a workshop, home office or log store, the end result is the same: a valuable and highly useful addition to your property.
These oak-fronted barn buildings are high-quality, long lasting and attractive. They look stylish but come without the usual price tag of a full oak frame structure.
Our open barn garage range offers a choice of prefabricated designs to complement the style of your home and to cater for a wide range of needs.

Our Car Barn Garages are made from sustainable timber
At Passmores, we ensure we do everything possible in our supply chain to minimise our impact on the environment. The structures of our open barns are made from sustainable timber that has been sourced from ethically managed forests in Sweden. So they not only look good, they’re great for the environment.
How much does a car barn garage cost to build and do you offer barn garage kits?
This depends on the type of barn you want with options available for all budgets. We manufacture all our timber barns at our workshop in Kent to prefabricated designs that have proven popular for over 30 years. You can choose your style from our brochure or build your own using our Open Barn & Carriage House price calculator.
When it comes to construction, our team can either errect it for you at your home (Delivery zones 1-3 only) or you can opt for the more affordable self-assembly, prefabricated barn kit.
Timber barn and garage kits are becoming a popular choice for Passmores customers as many enlist their local trusted builder for the project. Each barn kit is transported as a pack with frames, clearly listed items, components, and easy-to-understand instructions.

Do I need planning permission for my open barn?
We get asked this a lot about our wooden outbuildings and unfortunately there’s no straight-forward answer we can provide.
Planning permission depends on a number of factors like the size, height and location of your proposed building.
In many cases it won’t be necessary unless your property is listed or within a conservation area. However, if you want it built near a boundary or in front of the building line of your home then planning permission will be required.
We advise you speak to your local planning department about the rules in your specific location or you can find out more at the government’s planning portal www.planningportal.gov.uk.
