Building use, importance, and newsworthiness: This was a re-skinning of the entire outside. Old outside covering was wood and deteriorating. The entire exterior was covered in 26 gauge steel with stainless steel fasteners.

Unique features: Tow aluminum framed sliding loft doors were built custom operated from the inside to allow for hay bale unloading and loading. Two new insulated overhead doors with high windows for light were added along with an all steel entry door. The old wood cupola was removed and an all steel functional cupola was installed for ventilation.
