    Binbrook Barn

This is a brand new barn we just secured and it is called the Binbrook  Barn.  It is from  a small town near Hamilton Ontario, called Binbrook.  We get a lot of really good barn frames from this area. Some of the best farm lands in Ontario in this area and consequently some of the best  barns.  It has a massive  22" swing beam and very large mostly 12"x  12" posts and the swing beam posts are 12"x 14" very big-very rare.  Tie beams range from 10"x 12" to 12"x 12".  Rafters are full size 3"x 6"   Side walls are very high  and including the rafter plate are 17'8"  (great height for second floors and lofts). 4 bay--roughly 14', 12',  12' and 16'. All the major timbers are hand hewn pine. The original  loft joist were removed for some reason during its history  (now it is  just a makeshift loft) so they are not included in the sale but we can  provide these if you wanted.

This barn would lend itself to a 2100 to 2500 sq. home just by itself, or  with some nicely places shed additions, you could easily take the sq.  footage up to 3000 -3500 sq. ft. or more.

This barn is in overall excellent condition with a small section of rafter plate and swing beam that needs  some minor repairs. This is another superior barn frame that we get from Canada and is pretty much as good as them come. If the size is right  for you, with or without some additions, I would recommend you take a  good look at this one.

This barn also has a very large pulley system with shaft that we run into from time to time that is going with  the barn. As you probably know, these were used to get mechanical  advantage to lift heavy objects like wagons etc. when they needed a  crane back in those days. We have had several clients over the years  put these back in the barn in their homes as features. They sit on  wooden bearings on top of the tie beam so it can be moved to another  location that would be better suited if a person desired. Definitely a  conversation piece.Write for more details
