LOWVILLE BARN

30’ x 40’

White Pine and Hemlock Sawn Timbers

 It is 3 bay barn predominantly white pine and hemlock sawn timbers. which tends to be little dresser and perhaps more finished  than a hewn  frame but still very colonial and rustic looking and a very stunning  smaller frame.It is in mint condition.  The main posts are approx. 9"x9" which is a  nice meaty post for a barn this size. The purlin and rafter plates are  one piece and 40' long.  The side walls are very high -- 17' plus which  gives plenty of room for a second floor. It also has a purlin system to help support the roof and also adds a great looking feature to the  upper area of the barn space. Many barns 30' wide do not have purlin  systems. It  has a complete 2nd floor joist system with floor joist  timbers mortised into center beams (tie beams) . You could leave 1 or 2  bays open to roof (cathedral ceiling) and still have room for a large  open loft or other private rooms.

 More information coming in soon.

Very nice layout for 2nd floors or partial lofts in either end and a catwalk connecting them. 

It also has a great purlin system to help with roof engineering and they have great visual appeal.

We also have a swing beam long enough to put in this barn as well which will make it even more stunning.

Overall it is a great barn for conversion purposes and would make a very good  starting point for a recreation/family/party barn.

HUMBER RIVER BARN

SOLD!

30'x 46'2"

White Pine and Hemlock

30'x 46'2" footprint.

16' 6" side walls without plinth blocks. Excellent height even without plinth blocks. 

Main posts 10"x12" +/-. 

.Tie Beams 10"x 11" to 10" x 12". Also great size. Double tie beams on  each bent--very nice feature. One could be replaced with a Swing beam.

Rafter plates 10"x 11" one piece.

Girts  5"x 7"

Braces and studs  3"x 4"

Rafters  3"x 5" @ 3' centers.

Barn is in good condition and has a very nice balanced 3 bay layout

With 1' plinth block you could have an 9' 6" 1st floor height and still  have an 8' second floor for windows etc. on the side walls.  This would  give you plenty of height for the second floor lofts. We included very  basic  potential conceptual floor plan layout to show you an example of what could be done with this frame.

 The barn is also very straight and true as you can see from the photos of  the whole frame. The studs are also a nice feature and wide enough to  put windows between them. I always think  they add some great detail  and charm to the frame and many frames don't have them.

We could also add a 18"  to 20"  +/- swing beam with arches to this frame. See drawing Swing beam option

This is an excellent barn frame for conversion purposes.
