2008 Addition Remodel Under $100,000

The original barn was built in 1820, and was converted into a residence in 1999. This project was to add a 530 square foot addition that would meet the needs of a growing family and be designed to appear as part of the original structure.

The new roof presented a challenge due to its low pitch, snow load issues and interior headroom. Custom engineered Glue-lam rafters were used to meet these challenges. A standing seam metal roof was selected for durability and aesthetic values. Due to the low roof pitch, 6 gutters and downspouts were selected to extract water and snow from the roof as fast as possible. Due to limited concealed areas, heating and cooling of the addition would have to be installed in the new floor joist. The existing boiler capacity allowed for additional in-floor radiant heating to the new addition. Recycled barn stone was used for exterior steps and banding around the new patio.
