1890 Barn

This is a barn we restored and converted to a home. It has been many things over the years, an animal barn, a carriage house, a construction barn and a boat shop. We had to replace the foundation and rebuild the wing, The first floor was almost completely rotten away . The rear gable also had to be completely rebuilt . We added decks out back and a massive stone chimney . The entire frame is exposed on the inside and is gorgeous. we sandblasted off 100 years of grime and resealed the timbers with linseed oil. It is pretty impressive.
