Barn for Miles River Farm Estate
Project Details
Location: Easton, Maryland
Year: 2017

As the new owners of an Eastern Shore farm contemplated the renovation of its lovely manor home, it became clear that a distinctive new barn would be needed to house the owner’s avocations: a large woodworking shop and a second floor practice space for his rock band.

The barn is a traditional post and beam structure with standing seam metal roof, board and batten plank siding, a row of authentic swinging carriage doors along one side, large sliding doors at both ends, and cupola skylights. Solid pine timbers and laminated beams create a clear span of 32 feet for maneuvering vehicles.   Black windows, light fixtures, and ductwork unite a palette of subtly different natural wood tones.  Throughout, the building’s details highlight and express its structure, allowing the structure itself to be the focal point of the design.
