PowerLift Added To 1800s Barn

it's a 19th Century barn, but a 21st Century door.


This barn has lots of history for the family that owns it.

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

Their personal PowerLift door structure (as always) was a custom build. Its structural members were arranged so the original weathered wood boards could be re-applied.

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