Buildings I Like - Barns!

We recently volunteered to help fabricate and assemble a beautiful timberframe barn at UC Santa Cruz, recreating the Cowell Ranch hay barn. Slated to become a center for sustainability programs, properly maintained this 'new' barn should last hundreds of years - effectively the life cycle of the trees from which the timbers were milled. Congratulations are in order to Karl and Ginger Bareis of Santa Cruz Timberframes,, for their splendid work; proving some of the old ways are not a 'lost' art.

Finally, timberframes are a core strength of Kumaran Design. Would you like one?
