Raising the Baby Barn

Bit by bit, an architect builds a vacation house in the Vermont foothills

Architect Peter Woerner decided to build a Vermont vacation house bit by bit. Based on a traditional New England bank barn, his new Baby Barn features reclaimed barn timbers and siding to emulate the warmth of an old structure. Woerner spent money strategically, investing in high-quality finish items but also saving on components that would be easy to change later. Begun in May, the house was finished and livable by Thanksgiving. As the Baby Barn grew up, the author added a sliding barn door for security, a cupola, and a covered porch.
