With suburban sprawl and the widespread loss of the family farm, creative adaptive re-use is often the only alternative to demolition for many of the historic barns which still anchor our rural landscape. Because of their handsome timber frames and wide open plans and spaces, they easily lend themselves to a variety of innovative designs and new applications. Fitzgerald's Heavy Timber Construction, Inc. is a general contractor experienced in both new period construction and in historic restoration. We have seen that historic building technologies can create unexpected issues for designers and project managers not used to adapting them to modern requirements. Make us responsible for the success of the project and be assured of adherence to costs and schedules from the design stage through the installation of modern mechanical systems. Here, we show a conversions for a home, a school and other adaptive re-uses for rural barns.
