Daniels Farm Corn Crib
16 X 20 feet | circa 1830 | Waterford, Vermont
This little barn was originally used to dry corn. One gable end of the barn had slotted boards to help with the ventilation. From the beginning, however, the barn was used for multiple purposes. It has a full second floor, with a unique staircase that hinges up and out of the way to make more space on the first floor. It was later used as a machine shop. The frame has hand hewn posts and timbers, and half-round rafters and floor joists. It is an adorable cabin!
320 square feet on the first floor, with another approximately 300 feet on the second floor
Hewn softwood posts
Three bent structure
Half-round rafters and floor joists
Beautiful wide roof, siding, and floor boards
This vintage timber frame would make an adorable woodlands retreat cabin. The space is cozy, and could easily be heated with a small wood stove.
