1861 Dutch Barn

20 X 22 feet | 1861 | Greenbush, New York

We are very excited to restore this structure! It was disassembled by a different crew, and subsequently purchased by Green Mountain Timber Frames. More details and drawings will come once we have had time to assemble the wall sections at our shop. 

 

Details:

  • Hewn hardwood posts and horizontals

  • Sawn softwood braces and rafters

  • Six bents in such a small frame is typical of Dutch barn construction.

 

Possibilities:

This barn will make a wonderful studio, cabin, or outbuilding.

We love the proportions. The outline of original first floor windows can be seen in the siding.

The barn was built after the beginning of the slate industry, and so was built to withstand the weight of this roofing material.

This frame packs a lot of timbers for its size. A beauty!
