Ingersol 3 Barn 30’ x 50 ‘
Ingersol 3, (30€ x 50), another excellent barn frame that comes from Ingersol, Ontario, where we get many of our superior barn frames from. This is a 30 x 50 swing beam barn that is a very heavily timbered barn frame:
With a 1/3 to 1/2 loft second floor, this barn frame would lend itself to a 2000 to 2250 sq. ft 2 to 4 bedroom home just by itself. With adding traditional shed addition to one side or end you could easily gain another 500 to 1000 sq.ft or more, and give the exterior a very interesting saltbox look that many people seem to like. Shed additions are also very cost effective sq. footage and give great flexibility for creative floor plans and can help create a nice balanced look between rustic and refined.
We can also add a queen posted purlin system as we frequently do on other barns. The addition of a purlin system also helps with engineering as it definitely helps the roof system work and is a very stunning feature in the barn frame cathedral area. We are very good at fabricating these out of the same kind of hand hewn timbers so that it is very difficult to tell they were an add on when the barn is up and complete. Many early barns were built without purlin systems but with today's engineering codes, particularly if it will be re-purposed for some sort of residential use, they are a good adaptation feature to include in the barn frame package.
The Ingersol 3 is stunning barn frame for the core of a barn home conversion or other re-purposed use. This is about as good as they come really. With our 45 years experience working with barns and barn home conversions, we can also help you with the design and architectural plans. We specialize in barn home conversions and attempt to do so in the most cost effective manner possible while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the barn frame with your taste and vision for your new home in mind.
For more information please feel free to write or call. You will talk with me and I look forward to speaking with you and finding a new re-purposed home for this great barn.
