NORWICH BARN

SOLD!

 

30’ x 50’

The Norwich is an excellent 30'x50' swing beam barn with the loft and original floor joist. The other nice quality of this frame is that other than one replacement for purlins support the barn is almost completely as it was originally.

Another great feature of this barn is that the loft is still in tack and built such, that I believe it could be used as is in a home conversion for basically a 20' x 30' second floor loft bedrooms or anything you wanted. It has great hewn log sleepers for floor joist.

The side walls of this barn are 16' +/- and we could put the frame up on "plinth blocks" (that we make) which would elevate the entire frame up to a foot or more. We use them on most all of our barn these days to get an extra foot of so of elevation very cost effectively and they also add a great detail to the overall look of the frame. Sort of give it a "classical look" I sent a couple of photos of barn frames we put up for others that show the plinth blocks.
