If you've ever had the chance to watch some Barnwood Builders, then you know ACB is all about having us some fun. But in the process, we create some pretty special projects for our clients around the country. Below you will find some of the most memorable jobs we've had the pleasure of being a part of—paying homage to our American pioneer past, while creating something that will last another 200 years and beyond.
SASSAFRAS GUEST HOUSE
This guest house, built for the above Sassafras Meadow home, is built from repurposed 9 x 9 timbers reclaimed from multiple antique barns. The cottage is a detour from traditional log structures in that the timbers were hewn square as opposed to traditional two-sided hewn. The result is a rustic cabin with uniform notches, logs, and chinking gaps. Stepping inside this cabin feels like you've been transported to the Swiss Alps.
THE RETREAT HOME
This home is a contemporary design based on the traditional pioneer cabins of the past. At 2000 square feet, with an emphasis on antique logs and timber, Mark sought to modernize certain aspects of the home without sacrificing its historical aesthetic. The home is designed around an original 1850s structure reclaimed from West Virgina. The cabin is 17' x 23' with a large, modern stick frame addition. Constructed with the utmost attention to historical detail and aesthetic, the Retreat Cabin features three bedrooms and three baths.
