2,000 sq ft.
A dramatic conversion of a mid-19th-century oak timber-frame barn located in Concord, Massachusetts into a new home for its owners. Featured on This Old House during the 1989 season as part of their adaptive reuse project. Architect Jock Gifford designed a space to fit within the barn’s simple footprint. Tedd Benson and his crew deemed the existing barn impossible to repair and decided the only option was to start over with new wood. Benson and members of the Timber Framers' Guild of North America built the barn with classic mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques.
