This barn frame measurings 30’ wide x 64’ long with an attached 16’x38’ tee addition that was built by the same master barn builder about 15 years apart. The original 30’x42’ frame with (3) 14’spaced bents was built early to mid 1850’s. It is all handhewn timbers showing mostly white oak. The original frame is queen post roof design with very nice round pole rafters accenting the interior roof line. Around mid 1860’s (most likely as the Civil War was coming to a close) a 30’x22’ addition was added to the north end of the barn along with the 16’x38’ L extension. The addition is also handhewn timbers with a full 30’x22’ loft above the main floor. The roof rafters in this section are circle sawn but match identical to the original roof line. The 16’ x38’ is also 2 stories with a very large open loft space above the main floor area. Just the combined square footage with lofts is almost 3800 sq. ft. Another very unique feature about this barn frame is the amount of iron rods that were used to support additional free standing lofts in the barn. The master barn builder also incorporated the iron rods to create some clear span spaces in both the original and new additions. A barn worth seeing if you love many multiple lofts and are looking for a retreat structure that could easily accommodate many guest, family or grandchildren.
