Timber siding

The Big barn, all 2,000 sq. feet of it, is about to be completed. And when I say completed, I mean the exterior only.

Plans have changed and I am leaving the country for 5 months, but I will return in the spring and begin work on the inside.

These photos are of the new Larch* exterior of the East side of the barn. I choose this material because it is naturally weather resistant and also it warmed the visual transition between the white concrete main house.  I have also inserted an image from when I started this remodel in May to remind you all what it looked like before.

I will post another round of photos of the finished building in a week or so. It is so close !!

Larch sample

*Larch is a wood valued for its tough, waterproof and durable qualities; top quality knot-free timber is in great demand for building yachts and other small boats, for exterior cladding of buildings and interior panelling. The timber is resistant to rot when in contact with the ground, and is suitable for use as posts and in fencing.
