Door Added To 1800s Barn

19th Century barn now has 21st Century door.


This barn has a long history in the family that owns it.

Keeping a replacement door consistent with the barn’s era of origin was a big consideration of this renovation. The old sliding doors had been out of commission for decades, so they brought a door challenge to PowerLift.

Their PowerLift door structure (as is always true) was a custom build. Its structural members were spaced so the original weathered wood cladding could be re-used.

At a quick glance, the barn’s exterior is unchanged. It appears as it did in 1885 when driving by. The iron sliding door track is now non-functional, but it’s still in place as a styling cue. The presence of modern technology makes itself known as the touch of a remote opens the door!
