In May and June 2016 we had the privilege to restore a 100 year old barn that was collapsing.
It was 13″ out of level from one end to the next, so we had to jack up the posts, pour a concrete foundation & reinstall new posts. Luckily for us (and the barn owners) we were able to salvage a lot of the old lumber for patching the siding.
We had to also use new lumber that we used chemicals on to age them so that it would match the old barn wood. We put a new shake roof on it and a new galvanized metal roof. It’s been a pretty fun project knowing that we are saving a piece of history.
From the barn owner Mike:
J-Paul and the Fournier Construction Team did a great job restoring our 100 year old barn…..which was on the verge or collapsing. We wanted to make sure to retain as much of the old wood and structure of the barn as possible. The crew did a fantastic job stabilizing the structure, while maintaining its classic beauty! They were a pleasure to work with throughout the project. And we now have a barn for another 100 years!!”
