Check out this beautiful timber frame barn in New Hampshire! We worked with Architect JL Purcell Architects and Nichols Hill Builders on this beautiful barn. JL Purcell Architects designed our client’s new home and barn, harmonizing the two together into one fantastic property. The home was conventionally built on site and the barn designed to use traditional timber framing. The builder stick built the home on site and we supplied the structural shell for the beautiful new barn. In our package, we included a beautiful Douglas fir timber frame featuring traditional mortise and tenon joinery, secured with oak pegs. On top of the timber frame roof is pine tongue and groove decking we supplied. The barn structure is wrapped in Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS), creating a nice energy efficient envelope, which will help keep the space toasty during the harsh New England winters.

The barn features a 3 bay garage, perfect for storing cars, toys, or they could easily use it as a workshop. A loft above overlooks the first floor and is a perfect flex space that can be used for additional storage or as a space to relax and to enjoy the beauty of the timbers.
On the back side of the barn are guest quarters featuring a guest bedroom, full bathroom, kitchenette, sitting area, and the homeowner’s office. The barn also features solar panels.
Timber frame barns make a great accessory building to a property, whether you want to use it as a garage, storage barn for tractors or additional entertaining space. Better yet, building a barn that is multi-functional like this one is a great idea. Interested in building a new timber frame barn? Call us today at 800.636.0993!
