Walden 2 Barn

 

Walden 2 Barn

14'x 18'.  Small very charming timber frame barn with 8"x8" hand hewn  timbers and pole rafters  that would make a perfect small guest house,  art studio, office, pool  house, garden shed, or even a small addition  to existing home. It is in very good shape except for the posts bottoms  (which is a problem of almost all barns this age).  We plan to fix the  bottoms so that we have a side wall height of 10'.  This is enough to  have a small loft in 1/2 of the floor space with  30"  knee wall  which  is plenty of room for a sleeping loft for children or even adults who  are inclined towards a more minimalistic and cost effective life style.

We also plan to carefully take off and  keep the slightly rusted tin   roof and faded red barn siding so that these elements are available if  you would want to put them back on  the barn to maintain this very old  and colonial character that you see it these photos.  There is more of  the same siding on the main barn, which was built in 1859 BTW,  so we  will have plenty to do the entire exterior of this Walden 2 Cabin. 

Although this originally just had a dirt floor, it can be built on a foundation  deck and we could supply some very old wide plank flooring for both the  first floor and loft that would complete this exceptional little timber  frame barn. More photos will be coming as we take this structure  down.
