Project 13c: The New
Building for the old Homer Jones Barn
are the Barn plans, designed specifically to match a barn that was
designed and built in North Waldoboro over two hundred years ago by
Buying the Homer Jones Barn
Another magical thing that's
happened is that Harold was called to take down a 200+ year old barn
about 30 miles from here, and he asked if I'd like to buy it. I said
YES! It's got LOTS of gorgeous old wood, hand hewn beams that are 18+
feet long, a nifty hanging hay grabber and lots of other historical
Also, it will provide the basic materials for almost the whole barn part
of the new building, in which I will reside!!!!
Taking the Homer Jones Barn down
Harold and Ron took every timber down with care, so that it could be
reconstructed when it reached its new home
Moving the Homer Jones Barn to Boothbay
Then we stacked and
power-washed the timbers and put them on platforms and away in the barn
and in the new building.
Here are some of the planks
laid out on the Great Room floor.
And here the timbers are moved
to protection under the back porch of the farmhouse until they can can
be installed in the Great Room.
And here are the Homer barn
doors, two of which will be attached to the front of the new Homer Barn;
one of which will be made into the 12 foot dining room table, and one of
which will be installed as the countertop on the island.
