Welcome to Berkshire Barns
You can build beautiful AND build green at the same time…
Berkshire Barns, Inc. works exclusively in the art of historic structural restoration. Our team of craftsmen practice old world building methods to reproduce the look, character and feel that only an antique can offer. Berkshire Barns can transform an old barn, or early Timber Framed House into an energy efficient living space with a level of character and uniqueness unachievable with today’s mainstream construction styles. There is no modern-day replacement for the beauty of antique wood; a recycled timber framed home is a fine antique in itself.
There is no better way to start an environmentally friendly home construction project than with a recycled structure. By committing to reusing an old timber frame as the core of your new home, you are actually reducing your carbon footprint before you even start building: The historic timbers that make up a Berkshire Barns structure were not harvested from the forest with diesel powered equipment and chainsaws, but by men, teams of oxen and horses, and hand tools.
To learn more about how you can begin your next building project by going green with an antique structure, continue browsing our site, then give us a call to speak with an expert in Historic timber frame restoration.
