Project Background

Projects > Behrendt Barn

Location: Julian, CA
Construction: Wood Post
Progress: Completed in 2003
Synopsis: Considering the owners possess multiple horses; this barn will serve the conventional purpose of being a place to house the horses, their feed, and equipment. But it will also serve an alternative purpose as well… The Behrendt family reunion is approaching and the family is in need of more space. The upstairs loft will be used as additional sleeping for the many family members expected to arrive.
Update: During the San Diego wild fires in October 2003, the barn was singed, but not lost. The project was almost completed and the owners will repair and continue construction.
