History of Barns: Barn raisings were very popular during the 18th and 19th centuries and typically all “able” men would gather together to assist with the building of a barn. In fact, a barn raising didn’t just include the men, but also the women, who would be hard at work preparing the food for the crew. The children would stand by and often fetch the necessary tools for the crew. Although barns are rarely built this way anymore, you can still get the feel of a good old fashion barn going up by attending a timber frame raising!
Today’s featured photos are of a timber frame barn that was built on our client’s picturesque property located in a quaint village in Vermont. The 30’X40′ barn features hemlock timbers, a common wood species used to build barns. The barn was built by Dunne and Calder Construction and they did a fabulous job! Check out a couple of the interior photos below.
