Vermont Modern Barn
Vermont Modern Barn
The Vermont Modern Barn, a small, simple, home, modeled on the local form is updated with a structural system of steel beams and large glass doors..



Inspired by traditional barn forms and modernized with a structural system of steel beams, the Vermont Modern Barn is a design concept that can be adapted to suit a variety of needs and site conditions.  A built example of the design appears below.  

The Vermont Modern Barn is a small, simple, get-away home sited to take advantage of southern exposure and views.  Special features include a twelve-foot wide sliding glass door that disappears into the gable end wall and a pivot entry door that welcomes the owner and visitors.  A “bump out” containing four bunk beds accommodates overnight guests.
