Farm Shop Loft Ideas


A farm shop plays a vital role in both large and small operations. The shop serves a number of purposes including machine maintenance, tool storage, office and storage. Generally located in a central area of a farm, shops may vary in size depending upon the needs of the farmer. Some buildings contain lofted areas above the primary space. Lofts have the potential for a variety of uses in a farm shop.

Employee Lounge

  • Farmers and their employees spend long, hard hours working to keep the business running. Turn the farm shop loft into a relaxing retreat where people can make a brief escape to rest between tasks. Ask the employees for feedback on things they'd like to have in such a space. They might request things such as comfortable seating, a TV to catch up on the news, games, such as a pool or ping pong table, or even cots for a place to take a nap.

Storage Space

  • Farm shops may contain large amounts of equipment. A lofted area in the shop can provide a useful spot to store things that are not frequently used, or turn it into a highly-organized space for storing tools with convenient access to the main part of the shop.


  • Turn your farm shop loft into an apartment. Offer the space to a valued employee as part of his compensation for working for your farm. This can be an option for farmers who could benefit from help living on the property. Be sure to add some sort of soundproofing to the space, because farm shops can be noisy.


  • Convert the loft space into a farm office. Having your farm office close to the center of operations can be very useful and convenient. When employees have an urgent matter, administrators will be on-site and readily available for consultation.
