The Gaspar Barn

In considering the creation of some new structures at the Curran Homestead, the Gaspar Barn might serve as an example of a medium size structure with extensions. This structure is similar to the Curran barn in its construction. The framework is a combination of load bearing mortise and tenon beams and knee braces that have been spiked into place. Here are some photos of the structure:
