This is a 36’x36’, interrupted tie, gable entry barn.  The two lean to sheds increase the footprint to 36’x56’.  Still incorporating the English Tying joint, the frame’s interior posts reach the rafters.     All the timber for this frame was milled on site by the owner, Richard Legere, over a two year period.  He even made all the ash pegs.   There are eight different species of wood in this frame.     We often find several different species of wood in antique frames as the carpenter would usually hewn timbers from the wood lot on site.  Joinery and design are historically correct.  This barn will house the owner’s herd of goats.
