Malishenko Family Barn
Hochstetler Buildings, LLC
Building use, importance, and newsworthiness: This delightful post and beam appearance barn will have multiple hobby functions. The Malishenko family is enjoying the fruits of a sustainable property. They have a greenhouse and chicken coup also. They intend to seed and pot plants, raise chicks, carry out property maintenance/projects and as opportunity permits, entertain out of this building.
Unique features: The building is tucked into a hillside and very visible from all sides. The Malishenko family had a specific desire to use wood products for the siding in order to carry a 1920's era connection. We utilized sliding doors with large fixed lite window units to keep the building open and appealing. The roofing is a galvalume 5-v crimp roof panel in keeping with the era appearance. The interior contains a 12' x 24' loft hideaway. We used Fir 4" x 4" railing posts with horizontal cable spindling to keep the lower and upper levels flowing together.
Post-frame advantage: We had initially discussed post and beam construction but as we designed the project we were able to supply all of the desired details with post frame and save substantial money.
Cost per Sq. Ft.: $112 sq. ft. Building 24' x 36'; Loft 24' x 12'
Duration to complete: 106/75
