Built in c.1760, this small barn and connecting link to a well-preserved c.1810 colonial farm house provided the perfect opportunity to be converted to a ground level master bedroom en-suite. The original 250 year old timber framed structure was kept as is, and a new energy-efficient envelope wrapped the enclosure.
The upper level (the “hay loft”) was removed to expose the vaulted ceiling, and its original wide oak floor planks were reinstalled as the new bedroom’s flooring. All of the interior wood trim work (window and door casing, etc.) was also salvaged and re-milled from the original barn’s roof planks. The connecting link to the main house was also reconfigured to a bar/laundry passageway and the master bath with a tiled walk-in shower.
