The Beaver Hill Bank Barn is a stunning result of the combination of Kennebec Timber Framing’s intentional craftsmanship and our customer’s passions. Built in 2016 at the crest of Beaver Hill, this barn overlooks Central Maine’s rolling hills of farm and forest.
Collaboration was key in the construction of this barn. Harvested from our client’s personal woodlot, the wide pine boards that make up the roof sheathing were sawed by both us and our client himself. Live edged, wide-sawn hemlock railings surround a 12’ square, open loft detail upstairs. However, the real star of this project is the 6’ by 6’ cupola, topped by a prized weathervane — the inspiration behind the job. With a custom stand welded for the piece by our client’s nephew, our job was made easier, and the outcome made, not only beautiful, but meaningful.
Located on one of the oldest farmsteads in the Kennebec River Valley, the Nourse Farm Barn was built in 2017 to replace a circa 1795 barn. Styled in the classic Maine vernacular, this project is perched on a hilltop, overlooking two ponds below and breathtaking mountain vistas to the west.
With a full dormer and 6 foot square hip roof cupola, the Nourse Farm Barn holds its own kind of beauty against the backdrop of the Maine woods. Crafted from a mixture of circular sawn local hemlock and white pine timbers, the inside of the barn is just as impressive. Featuring live edged railings alongside heavy timber stairs, the attention to detail makes the space as attractive as it is functional.
