Corn Crib Renovation

New Market, MD, Maryland

This historic corn crib and wagon shed had fallen into disrepair.  FHTC stabilized the structure on a new foundation, repaired the timber framing, replaced the siding and roof, enclosed the drive bay with timber framed doors, and added a shed addition to house the Client's wood drying kiln.
