Green Barn Monkton, MD

— scroll to view project —

This bank barn was originally built in the early 1800s. In 2018, B&D Builders was hired to give it new life. The client wanted to keep the historic look of the barn but also wanted room for eight horse stalls —traditionally too many for the barn’s small floor plan. B&D Builders and Mark C. Myers Architects partnered up and created a beautiful design that exceeded the client’s expectations and kept the barn as traditional looking as possible.

The bank barn now includes a re-engineered standing seam metal roof to support a 6-foot cupola made by Vintage Millwork and Restoration. It also includes painted board-and-batten cedar siding, Vintage Millwork exterior Dutch doors, Vintage Wood and Forged Iron hinges and hardware, and reclaimed cobblestone on the front of the barn. There are white oak stall doors, reclaimed white oak stall fronts and partitions, half-round copper gutters and downspouts, dog bone rubber aisle pavers, and a replacement of a number of old floor joists, thresher floorboards, and miscellaneous timber frame components supplied by Vintage Wood and Forged Iron.
