Lancaster Barn

18 x 24 Feet | circa 1850 | West Pawlet, Vermont

This barn is from the historic Lancaster Farm in West Pawlet, Vermont. It was built to house animals, and has been used for various animals throughout its lifespan. The barn was built during a transition period between timber frame construction and stud wall construction, and it is wonderful how both methods were used in this structure. 

Details:

  • Hardwood hewn timbers, with hemlock half-round rafters

  • Potential for a sleeping loft

  • Sawn studs, many of them hardwood

  • Restored frame, erected on your foundation, with vintage roof boards applied.

 

Possibilities:

This structure could be a wonderful retreat cabin, tiny house, storage barn, or it could once again be the home of farm animals.

We love the proportions of this adorable frame. Imagine lots of glass up in the gable if it becomes a cabin.

Many of the studs are saw out of oak. This photo shows the tell-tale rays of oak in the grain of the wood.

The horizontal hewn timbers are full of character! There is one original low interior timber that could be removed, or incorporated into a kitchen counter or island.

The posts and horizontal beams are hewn, and create a beautiful open feel. We imagine the gable pictured here filled with glass if this barn becomes a cabin.
