14 X 22 feet | circa 1850 | Hartford, New York
This structure, originally built as a corn crib and later utilized as a trapper cabin, has beautiful timbers and a wonderful interior feel. The beams are sawn by an early water saw. The roof boards, siding, and flooring have great color and width. The Trapper Cabin is a three bent structure, and originally had a full loft. It could be put back up this way, or modified to have a half loft for sleeping or reading, and half cathedral. The horizontal ties in the gable walls can easily be moved to accommodate windows.
308 square feet on the first floor
Sawn softwood posts and beams, with the exception of one hewn corner post
Three bent structure
Full length 22 foot timbers
Sawn rafters and floor joists
Comes with flooring for 1/2 loft, vintage roof boards, and beautiful wall boards
The Trappers Cabin would be ideally suited for use as a woods retreat cabin. It could be minimally insulated, or left as a seasonal cabin. A tiny wood stove would heat the space nicely. It could also make a wonderful garden barn to house supplies or for potting plants.
