Bank-Barn restoration, “Reclaimed from ruin,” Lancaster County

Deteriorated and missing roof coverings, missing siding on the forebay, no gutters, and improper soil grading had contributed heavily to the structural damage of this bank (or Swisser) barn. In addition, several sheds, accessory buildings, and other structures had been built onto the barn. In removing those additions, we found even more damage than anticipated. Restore ‘N More’s carpenters replaced hand-hewn rafters, roof plates, purlins, floor joists, and forebay posts and sills; roofers installed a new wood shake roof; and, masons re-built entire sections of stone walls, including the stone and earthen ramps. New board-&-batten doors duplicate the originals, including the wrought nails used for clinching in the battens.
