FWA provided architectural, survey, and civil engineering services for the new construction of the Miller Barn, a 6,055-square-foot barn built on 15 acres of sweeping farmland. The property owner, Mr. Miller, wanted to construct a barn for heavy farm equipment storage.
The building boasts a red cedar board-and-batten wood frame, stone veneer base with complementary pressure-treated cedar-mitered columns, forest green metal-seam roof, and copper cupolas. The design carries over to the covered front porch that oversees the sprawling farmland. Nestled into the foothills behind the building is a 12-foot-tall retaining wall.
The main interior level of the barn is outfitted with stained T1-11 interior siding that clears 14 feet to the airy loft, which was designed for additional storage and an office. Dormers in the roof provide natural light that floods the interior space through the double -hung, white vinyl- framed windows. The 14 × 14 foot barn doors facilitate the transportation of large machinery.
