We finished work on this beautiful barn in Manchester, VT back in 2013. Since then the owners sourced particular stone for the finish landscaping and the final results are evident in the following pictures.
The barn is from Middle Granville, NY and was originally built around 1800. The current family wanted a timber frame barn to match their Green Mountain Timber Frames barn style home. In the pictures below, you can see the process and transformation that this barn went through.
Another aspect of this frame was working with and restoring the truss girt system. Not typical of a frame from this time period, this type of truss girt system means that two large timbers are joined together in the middle with a small connecting post and braces. This allows there to be no post in the middle of the frame thus having a clear 31 foot wide space to use with no posts to bump into. Below, you can see the process we used to restore this truss girt system.
This first picture shows the source of siding, another barn in NY state. The siding was for sale and we seized the opportunity.
I am always looking for new projects! Do you have a barn you want restored? Do you want to live in a historic timber frame?
