Trumbull County, Ohio - Barn built 1901 Size 30x40ft

by David
(Trumbull County, Ohio)

According to our local auditors site, this barn was built in 1901. Dimensions are 30x40ft.

I could be wrong but It appears to be board and batten and hand hewn. I am unsure of the type of wood.

The barn is leaning and one support bean is pulling away from the main outer frame.
I do not wish to invest in restoring this barn. It's future is in repurposing so many others may enjoy it.

The roof is dry. The hay lift is still hanging from the rafters on the metal rail.

I am in the process of cleaning out the barn. I do believe there is value here.
I have also begun clearing around the barn since these photos have been taken.
I have already begun the process of taking quotes and have it advertised in several outlets.

I do expect a start and finish date in the contract along with a cleanup deposit.

Interested parties may contact me through email: [email protected]

typical early barn NEW
by: tom murison

This barn is between 16' and 18' from sill to top plate. The tie beams and top plates use compression braces that appear to be 4" x 4"and were built flush with one face (inner side) of the posts. The wide roof sheathijng and spacing of rafters (approx. 42" o.c.) are also very typical of barns built between 1825 and 1865 in southern Ontario. The tie beam appears to be hewn while the sheathing & floors (presumably) were sawn. This combination of large hewn timbers felled and dressed locally with sawn boards was also typical of structures built in the pioneer phase of settlement, but after water powered sawmills became established. If the sheathing boards have large elliptical holes (insect tunnels) from "large head boring beetles", the logs were felled in warm weather and not properly de-barked before sawing. Most better quality planks in Ontario were from trees felled in cold weather, and debarked before spring time when the beetles become active. I have seen this type of structure in dozens of early buildings including drive sheds and some houses, and have reproduced similar structures ie. (Waldies Blacksmith Shop, 16 James Street, Milton, Ontario. Hope this is useful. T. M. Oakville, Ontario
