Rupert Granary

17 X 20 feet | circa 1800 | Rupert, Vermont

This little granary is a remarkable example of early New England craftsmanship. It is a classic granary or corn crib, with eve walls that are wider at the top than at the base, making the walls tip out five inches on each side. This technique was used to help in keeping the valuable corn and grain dry. The rafters are hewn hardwood, as are the posts and other beams. The granary has a central loft, and could be converted to be half loft or full loft.

 

Details: 

  • 340 square feet of footprint, with the possibility of another 300 feet of loft space

  • Slanted eve walls add a fascinating feature

  • Beautiful rafter tail details

  • Hewn rafters

  • Comes with vintage roof boards and one layer of vintage siding that can provide the interior show surface

Possibilities:

This stout little structure is ideal for a cabin or small studio. It could also be an adorable garden barn. The structure can be left cathedral ceiling for a wide open and tall feeling.
