Doylestown Barn

Our clients wanted to renovate a small 19th c. barn in the rear of their residential property in the historic district of Doylestown Borough into a living space for their family. The existing barn had no foundation and a rotting timber structure, so we decided to build a completely new structure the same size and shape as the original. We incorporated a large area of windows and a glass door, and designed a sliding barn door to conceal it from the street when not in use. The first floor features a living room with a kitchenette and fireplace. A winding stair leads to a mezzanine level open to the floor below. Reclaimed wood from the original barn is used as structural collar ties at the roof and as a decorative frame at the fireplace.
