This barn dates back to the mid 1800’s and was the hay barn on the Foreman Farm in Montgomery County, PA.  It is made of predominately quatersawn oak with outstandingly beautiful markings in the beams.  The original barn measures 30 by 40 feet with an extra bay added probably near the turn of the last century adding another 15 feet in length, making it 30 by 55 feet.  The added bent was done tastefully and could be rebuilt in its original or altered size. This frame was rebuilt in Madison, Connecticut.  Structural insulated panels were added to the outside of the old barn which will provide all the structural integrity of the building while the original timber frame will hold none of the structural weight load.
