One of the most common mistakes made when building a barn or a home is thinking the terrain needs to be altered to suit the structure. Consider taking a cue from past centuries and turn that thought around by allowing the site to determine the structure. Altering a site is expensive and often times totally unnecessary. Working with a site allows buildings to look totally natural; as though they belong to the terrain as opposed to being set on it.
This is especially true when it comes to a barn. Whether for livestock, machinery or human inhabitants, the barn is a structure that is part of the land; it signifies both utility and rustic beauty.
Bank barns can be in a wide variety of styles and for just about any purpose. Cupolas and dormers, as well as sliding barn doors are but a few options that make each barn unique. Here are a few examples of bank barns designed to be as useful as they are attractive.
Should you find yourself in need of a barn and happen to have a spare hillside, you’re in luck as the bank barn is the perfect structure for you!
