It’s projects like this when our love of western design really comes in handy. The customer had the idea to build a saloon off an existing barn. We thought, what a great idea and why not! From designing to engineering to building, The Barn Yard accomplished the task in classic western style, crafting a building located in New England that might as well be in Wyoming. Read on for more details and photos from the construction.
- 16' x 20' Saloon attached to existing barn
- Rough cut pine siding
- Timber frame roof truss structure with powder coated steel brackets
- 2x8 T&G southern yellow pine ceiling
- Custom front porch with log style railings
- Barn board stamped concrete floor
- Complete with saloon-style bar
- Heated with wood stove
Following are photos from the construction of the saloon. As you can see, the roof structure is true post and beam timber framing. The beams really do support the weight of the roof. There are no additional trusses.
