A Classic 1800’s Barn Retrofit

This barn is highly regarded by its owners. It needed to be remodeled, but they wanted to keep its appearance in harmony with its origin.

The old wood sliding doors had stopped being usable decades ago, so they presented their challenge to PowerLift. The resulting custom PowerLift door has steel frame members spaced to allow the original weathered wood door boards to be reused.

The heirloom barn hasn’t changed in appearance: from the road it looks just like it did in the 1880s. The iron sliding door track (non-functional today) was retained as a period styling element. There’s no hint at the presence of the 21st century until the remote control is pressed and the door opens!
