Timber Barn Reconstruction

Bonin Architects is design and renderings for the reconstruction of the 4200 square foot Tattersall Farm timber frame barn in Haverhill, Massachusetts.

Once a large and magnificent working dairy barn comprised of heavy timber construction, it was partially destroyed by fire many years ago and eventually the barn collapsed. Today, only a few of the original timbers are still located at the site, which we hope to incorporate into the design for aesthetic and historical purposes. Part of the original foundation and two silo foundations are still present; the main barn foundation will be replaced. Currently planning is underway by the board of trustees to reconstruct the barn for multi-use purposes which will be available to the public for educational and recreational uses once funding is secured. The main farmhouse is still intact and is used as the caretaker’s residence.

The timber frame barn will be a multi-use building able to host educational seminars, conferences, and outdoor social gatherings on the spacious stone deck. Check out our other timber frames and timber houses in our On The Boards section of our website!
