This is a barn built in 1750 it is an English style barn. the owner had to decide to tear down or save  .  We lifted the building, put in a new foundation and slab we restored the timber  frame and sheathing and put in new horse stalls.  The second floor is a hay loft. We were also able to repair and save the attached silo . the barn is now used as a 9 horse barn
