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

Tool Sheds:
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.

Barn Raising Earn 100 Coins For Helping





Please!! Post your link only ONE time. Duplicate posts will be deleted. This thread has over 1000 comments and I cannot keep up with the approvals.

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!

    Don’t forget that you can get extra chicken coops during your barn raising. I have 6 and started with just 1 a few hours ago.

    1) Move your chicken coop to the top right corner of your farm

    2) Expand barn

    3) After the barn raising is done, expand another barn or tool shed then move the chicken coop

    4) There should be at least 1 new coop under your original coop, maybe even two. I had 1 extra coop 1 time, and the last two times I did this, I had 2 extra coops under my original coop.

    5) Move the new empty coop out of the way and return the original coop to the top right corner.

    6) After the next barn raising is done, expand another barn/tool shed, then check under the original coop again for more coops.

    7) Repeat over and over again?

    I don’t know how many times you can do this. I haven’t lost any chickens from it yet.
