The owner collects images of traditional barn structures and details like a boy collects baseball cards. The barns of Pennsylvania were the inspiration for this 24' x 80' timber framed studio in Estacada, Oregon. The building is divided by a breezeway into two halves: the welding shop and the clean art studio. A loft above the breezeway provides space for a library that looks down into both studios. To give the building an aged character virtually all the structural timber and interior finish wood was salvaged material that was resawn and milled on site as needed for the project.
