Bank Barn Project: Under Construction

Email Subscription

I mentioned one of our current bank barn projects in my last entry and thought I’d post a few photos. This project salvages a historic German-style bank barn that fell into serious decay. The barn is undergoing renovation into a private family entertainment space. Once completed, the barn will have two bedrooms, two loft-style dayrooms, 3.5 baths, a family room with a stone fireplace as a focal point, a large kitchen, and other amenities. It will be perfect for the owner’s adult children and their families to stay during visits, as well as serve as a gathering place for parties or family dinners. But for now, you’ll have to use your imagination because the work has just begun.

The first step toward converting the bank barn was to actually straighten and stabilize the entire structure. Then, due to local zoning issues, the barn was moved to a new location off the road. That was definitely an interesting sight for neighbors and passersby–a barn being carted across the road. Now that the barn is structurally sound, construction can commence. 

I’ll post more photos as the work continues.

    See if your town has an animal cotnorl department or officer. Your local shelter could probably help too. If not, just notify the police. If the horse is saveable, they will put him up for adoption. I see it all the time in our newspaper and we really don’t live in that rural of an areal. Good luck and horses everywhere thank you!
