Geobarns’ Maine-based crew has begun work on a barn in Bridgewater. Designed as a recreational addition to an historic mountaintop house, the team has had to contend with early-onset mud season (EOMS).
The foundation for the project, by our friend Greg Blanchard, seemed to hit water in every conceivable form. An unknown waterline, from an unknown historic well, subsurface drainage from the surrounding mountainside… we just arrived on site every day to a new surprise. Extremely diligent work has established a workable foundation, and after a brief delay for some leveling, the Maine Men (Matthew, David and Lee) have made quick work of setting the building’s posts. By press time, much of the building’s floor system will be installed, then on to the upper beam.
