a new life to one of the oldest barns
When the owner bought their new house, they didn’t fully know the property’s history. The barn in the backyard is the third oldest barn on record in Essex, MA, still standing today. It was connected to the main house but wasn’t insulated and had no heating source. The bones were good. It was weather tight and had a lot of potential.
The owner is a single dad who likes to entertain. He wanted to keep the old barn feel but wanted a modern space for people to gather and feel comfortable. Adding the loft space was a little tricky, but the contractor, Tim Hagan, did a fabulous job blending new with old.
