Bridport Kingpost Barn
26 X 42.5 feet | Circa 1850 | Bridport, Vermont
Kingpost barns are rare in New England. This one has an incredible five sided ridge beam, which is supported by a post at each gable end of the barn, as well as a third post in the center of the building. The rafters are primarily half round pine with beautiful patina. This frame comes with the original roof boards. The barn can have a full second floor, or it can be left with a partial cathedral ceiling. We will want to add a low post in the center bent to further support the ridge beam. The number of braces in this frame is phenomenal! We especially like the long braces that go from the king posts out into the ridge beam
1,105 square feet of footprint with great potential for more space on the second floor
Sawn red oak posts and braces, pine rafters and ridge beam, and poplar top plates
Exceptional rafter system
Restored frame, erected on your foundation, with original roof boards installed
This barn would make a wonderful maker space, home, or garage.
