Greenwich Corn Barn
16 X 18 feet | 1820s | Greenwich, NY
This adorable Chestnut frame was constructed in the early 1800s. Measuring 16x18, it was big enough to store corn on the cob for a small farm's winter supply. The walls on this corn crib are not tipped. It has two beautiful 18 foot timbers that ran from gable to gable 42 inches in from the eave walls. Originally, studs dropped down under these beams to form storage bins along the interior of both eaves. We love the wind bracing system in this barn, which has braces at the top and bottoms of the posts. This corn crib was the only original barn on the farmstead to survive a fire that destroyed several other early barns on the property. We are so glad it survived!
10 foot eaves give a spacious feel.
Chestnut posts and beams, with oak braces and horizontals
288 square feet, with the possibility for sleeping or storage loft
Restored frame, erected on your foundation, with original roof boards installed, and siding provided.
This corn crib would make a wonderful entry to a house, home office, small cabin, or small addition to an existing home.
