Re-purposed Historic Pennsylvania Barn to Riverfront Home on the James River

Charles City County, Virginia

A 200 year old Pennsylvania Barn about to be demolished for development was deconstructed and shipped to its new homesite on the James River where it was reassembled on a new radiant slab.  Four Gables were added to create rooms on the second level; the timber frame was infilled with composite structural insulated wall panels and new insulated windows by Pella.  The original stone foundation was re-used as a veneer and hardwood from the site was milled for window headers and sills. The roof is a combination of Slate and Copper and the columns along the river side porch were columns fabricated from tree trunks that were found in an architectural salvage yard.
