Hand Hewn Cuba Barn
This barn is 48' wide and 50' deep, with bents spaced 12' apart. It has massive 10" x 10" hand hewn posts. There's a swing beam on the second bent from the left, which makes the center section 24' wide, and means this barn only has 4 interior posts. With so much open space, this barn would make a great event center. The barn is 12' high to the eave, 19' to the purlins, and 26'6'' to the peak. Dates to 1850-1870. The barn is still standing and you can visit it for an inspection. It has been well protected with wood and metal siding. The price for this frame is $46,000. This includes us carefully dismantling the frame, taking it back to our shop, and fixing or replacing any broken timbers using traditional timber framing techniques. This also includes all the framing members, posts, plates, braces, etc. and all of the rafters carefully wire brushed and cleaned. The barn will be ready to put right back up on your foundation.

Cute 20 x 14 early hand hewn frame
Small frame found in the center of Jeffersonville, Ohio. Locals told us that is was one of the first buildings in the town. This structure would make a great outdoor shelter house or hunting lodge, or it could be added on to an existing house for an amazing dining room or bedroom. Price is $7500 which includes all of the framing member and the rafters. Just like all of our buildings it is tagged and well documented and we would love to be the company that puts this historic structure back up on your property.
hand-hewn house frame
Our plan was just to salvage old beams from this farmhouse with a plain exterior. But when we started tearing off plaster we noticed something remarkable: every single framing piece is hand-hewn. That dates this structure to no later than the 1820s, before sawmills were established in Southern Ohio. The structure is now tagged and dismantled and ready for a buyer with the vision to turn it into a home of distinction. The interior can be opened up and the exterior can be clad with structural insulated panels so the fine craftsmanship is visible throughout. We can rebuild on your site. Many of the original doors and mantles were salvaged, and we can also include original flooring and rafters with the frame. Dimensions: 18 x 28 feet.
This is truly a unique barn. It is 48 X 36 and all hand hewn. It's in phenomenal shape for its age and it has "marriage marks" which are roman numerals carved on the joints so the original carpenter would know how the barn goes up once all of the pieces were made. This massive structure could have 3 levels of floors. it is hard to see in the picture because of the tobacco rails that criss cross the structure. This barn is still standing and is available to tour. Price for the complete frame tagged and ready to reassemble is $26,000.
