FarmVille Barn Raising: Expand Your Storage!
We complained – Zynga listened! Well, at least about the lack of reasonable storage they did. As of an hour or so ago, FarmVille released the ability to host a Barn Raising; allowing you to increase the storage space in both your barns and your tool sheds.
Of interest to many as well, you will see in one of the pictures below that we will also be able to expand our Dairy Farms, Garden Sheds and….. Chicken Coops!
As you can see below, there are 3 levels to each expansion; giving you more room at each level. Here is what we know so far:
Level 1 (Red Barn) – increases storage from 0 spots to 6 spots (your initial purchase)
Level 2 (Big Barn) – increases storage from 6 spots to 11 spots
Level 3 (Huge Barn) – increases storage from 11 spots to 18 spots
Level 1 (Tool Shed) – increases storage from 0 spots to 2 spots (your initial purchase)
Level 2 (Big Shed) – increases storage from 2 spots to 7 spots
Level 3 (Huge Shed) – increases storage from 7 spots to 14 spots
To start a barn raising, simply click on your barn or tool shed and select Expand Storage. Select the building you wish to expand and it will post your Barn Raising event to your wall. Simply have 10 friends click the link within 3 days and voila! Your building is automatically expanded. Friends earn 100 coins for helping out, and you can watch your progress at any time by refreshing your farm and selecting the Expand Storage option again.
As nice as it is, there is no need to reply to every persons link with a comment or a link to your own raising.
If everyone posts once and people help a large group of posts above them, this will work a lot smoother than it is now.
Thanks for understanding everyone!
For some reason after I did all this, the link/event thing asking for people to help me was not posted up on my wall or anywhere. I am not sure how I can get the link so I can post it myself or how to resend that I need people to help me.
What do I do? Help?!
Brittany, all you need to do is click the Give Up button on your Expand Storage tab, and then start the process over. I think FarmVille was having some posting issues last evening with all the people rushing to raise barns…lol.. Today should be a little better I hope
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I thought when you hit give up you would not get to try again.
Glad to have this cleared up!
Thanks for your help!
Is there a way to repost or remind friends that you need help with your barn raising? I need three more but mine was posted yesterday and many people don’t look that far back into their newsfeeds to see the post. Any suggestions? Thanks!
If you go find your post, then hover over the ‘Click Here To Help’ link, right click and select Copy Link Location – you can then paste the link into your status message and ask people to help again

Hey would anyone be willing to help me with my barn raising?
If so just click on the link below!! Thanks!! My friends don’t seem to want to help me
I am confused by the new storage additions. I sent the notice to my wall, and I got my ten people within twelve hours or so. Do I still have to wait three days for something to happen? Or is there something I am missing that I now need to do to make the enlargement happen? When I click on expand storage, it tells me I have 10 of 10, but gives me no option I see for “building” or actually making the expansion occur. Can you help me?
Exit FarmVille and reload the game and it will then show your new storage size. You don’t actually see the building of the barn, nor do you see a physical increase in the size of it. Only the amount you can store inside changes.
Please, seems that my “friends” don’t want to help me ;_;
Anyone wants to help me (and get those 100 coins)?
Thank you guys!
Would anyone help me to raise the barn?
I posted once for help and only 2 ppl did. I have to give it up because I can’t post the message again. Thanks
All I need is one more person to help! My farmer friends are not very helpful!!
I have the same problem as Wendy. I posted my barn raising last night(Fri). It’s a day later and now I can’t find my posting to repost it. I have 5 responses, but I need 5 more. How do I repost without losing the 5 people I already have?
To find your post, go to your Profile page and you will see it there – then hover over the ‘Click Here To Help’ link, right click and select Copy Link Location – you can then paste the link into your status message and ask people to help again
It didn’t work for me. I got 10 helps, but it didn’t expand my barn. I only had the “give up” and “buy” options. when i hit “buy” it wanted 10 farmville cash, so i canceled it. that left me with nothing. I guess now I needed to close it and reopen to see if it’ll do it next time. meanwhile, i’ve started the process on my other barn.
Update on my previous post – now my barn has been expanded and i’m working on expanding the second barn. It just took a bit.
All I need are 5 more people to help me. Please help!
Need 5 more to get 1st upgrade on barn.. please help.
