The Horsepower Shed

This little structure is something we’ve not yet seen in all our years of dismantling. This small “bank” barn has a stall underneath for a horse, who walked on a specially designed “horse treadmill” which in turn was attached to a pulley system that drove the machinery upstairs!  It was a one horsepower shed!
It measures 14 by 24 ft and is sawn softwood. It would be built from the top of the slab up, so it would be a one story without the basement upon reassembly.  The inside wall height is 7 foot and the height to the peak is just under 11.5 feet. The rafters measure 2 by 6″, as do the floor joists. There is one barn door on the east side and one small window on the north side.  The frame, rafters and joists are all structurally sound. Any salvageable flooring and siding are also included. This little building would be great for an artist’s studio, garden shed or small guest quarters.
