Over the past year, part of our crew has been busy repairing a barn at I-Farm, a multi-building complex soon to become a working farm that teaches early farm technology and sustainable agricultural practices.
Around the turn of the century, the barn that had been there previously, a hand-hewn English frame (eave entry) was converted into the barn standing now, a Yankee hay barn (gable entry) and dairy. We’ve worked closely with the architect, Benjamin Nutter, and the owner, Chris Berensfeld, folks who care about their work, and really “get” preservation.
This past week, Shawn has been busy at the shop restoring the cylindrical top of a water tower that was built around the same time that the barn was converted. Please peruse the photos, below:
