1903 White Mule Barn & Stable
Specifications: This barn and stable was constructed at the turn of the last century of old growth Virginia pine. These massive pines were grown and milled on a Virginia farm that saw the armies of the divided Union march past on their way to Appomattox Court House.
Reclamation began in February 2016 on this barn and stable, in addition to three other structures at this farm location.
Our crew carefully reclaimed a 600 sq. ft. granary floor of random width, 1 1/2″ thickness planks;
1500 +sq. ft. of 6-8-10 inch milled planking 3/4″ to 1 1/4 inch thickness, lengths from 8 to 14 ft.;
2 x 8 x 12 tight grained, dense rafters and joists,
and a nice gathering of stable gates, farm doors, wooden feed boxes and iron hardware.
See ‘Mattie’s House,’ ‘Cribs and Coop’ for more reclaimed oak beams, plus vintage joists and planking to fully appreciate the quality of old growth Virginia pine.
