In the mountains of Vermont, we built an incredible “mountain modern” timber frame home, combining the rustic aspects of timber framing with today’s modern architecture. The frame of this 3,650 sq. ft. home was constructed using Douglas Fir timbers, and is comprised of two floors. The angled roofline and massive windows with the Douglas Fir frame and reclaimed barn board siding combine for a stunning sight. This is certainly a stellar property, ready for hosting friends and family year-round.
This customer wanted to recreate a barn from their past using today’s timber framing technology. They turned to The Barn Yard to replicate the design from a historic barn they previously owned. The design was different from our standard Lenox Carriage Barns, featuring common purlins in place of common rafters, and cut from Hemlock instead of our usual Eastern White Pine or Douglas Fir. We were very excited to help bring a piece of this customer’s past back to the present. This barn was shipped to Coastal Maine in kit form. Let’s take a photo tour of this barn, which is used a workshop and storage space for the owners.
