In 2016, Ryan from Acadian Custom Renovations restored our tired old post and beam barn with a beefed up structure and a facelift. He carefully peeled off its thick cedar skin and reinforced the log frame; sistering the beams, replacing one of the main posts with a new tree trunk that he harvested himself, and cladding the first floor with OSB. Then he reapplied the cedar, screwing it down tightly, added trim boards and primed and painted.

In 2017, Ryan’s back, and lucky barn is getting a new hat!
