26 X 36 feet | circa 1840s | Hampton, New York
This structure is a beautiful English style barn. The posts and horizontal timbers are very large, and they have beautiful color. This frame is at a size that interior posts are not necessary, making the inside space an open canvas for living space or work space. The wetlands visible in some of the photos of this barn were created about thirty years ago by beavers. The farmer I purchased this barn from used to put hay from those fields- now beaver pond- into this barn as a kid.
900+ square feet
Clear span girts
Roof board up to 18 inches wide
This remarkable frame would make a wonderful great room in a house or it could be a stand alone destination point for gatherings. It could also be a garage or workshop.
