This is a timber frame barn we are restoring and converting to living space we have completed extensive repairs to the frame and are now ready to close it in , as you can see we added a cupola for light and ventilation. the interior looks like the original barn with exposed timbers and barn board , the exterior has an additional frame added in which there is foam insulation. we clad it with pine barn board so that it will age like the original. It came out really nice, I will post interior pictures at some point. we used vintage hardware where possible. the birdhouses hide th vent pipes for the heating system and an air exchange system . the wood box below the electric meter holds wood but also hides the vent for the dryer and the range hood.
