Updated Eshpeter Barn Pictures

2017 Pictures of 2016 Eshpeter Barn Renovation

In November 2016, the Eshpeter Barn underwent extensive renovations. These improvements will greatly extend the life of the barn and increase its modern-day functionality. The rejuvenation will allow the barn to continue to serve the entire family, as a tether to the past. It will act as a daily reminder of the family’s history and as a source of comfort for the younger generations. No one in the family will be untouched by the gentle giant – the heritage barn.

This frame shows the new staircase in the north-eastern corner of the barn. Additionally, new ply-wood can be seen on the North side of the barn. This was installed because much of the original wood had rotten away on this side. The South side of the barn did not need to have this done. The South side of the barn is still in its original condition except for the removal of the stalls.
