Tiffin / Hodges Frame

1830’s
Ohio Valley Barn Salvage - Tiffin / Hodges Frame

On December 03, 2022 the OVBS crew headed to Yanceville, North Carolina to reassemble the Historic Tiffin Frame , circa early 1830’s for Todd & Nikki Hodges. This outstanding hand hewn frame was built near Tiffin Ohio around the early 1830’s. The original frame measured 40’x80’, however there was weather damage to the last 20’ section and the frame size was shortened to 61’. The primary uprights measured a full 12”x12”. The low rafter plate was an amazing 10”x12” wide. All the primary tie beams measured 12” wide x 15” tall. The highlight of this frame is the very rare double stacked swing beam measuring 12” x 18” tall at the center point of the beam. This bent section was a clear span of 38’. The OVBS carefully preserved the hay roller that had been basically hacked into the upper tie beam. The swing beam carries 29’ deep sleeper logs that span the last bay. The OVBS team rebuilt (4) primary upright post and had to repair about ½ of the low rafter plates. Yet from the interior view there are no visible signs of repairs. All of the primary timbers were white oak. The OVBS also replicated missing king post tie girts that had been removed when the hay rail was installed in the 1860’s. The original barn was built with hand split rafters. Most of the rafters had been replaced during a major upgrade to the roof around 1900. OVBS furnished historically correct pole rafters that matched the roof design during that time period. Our crew was onsite (8) days and had perfect North Carolina weather, sunny all 8 days!!! Todd and Nikki will be very proud to live in this great Ohio Barn once it is completed.
