Bridge & Barn

Consider this barn an 8,000-square-foot custom home for cattle. The timber-frame structure in rural Albemarle County is constructed of all locally harvested green wood--white oak. It has 10’ x 10’ posts, 10’x14’ and 10’x16’ beams and timber trusses.  The building can accommodate 40 head of cattle as well as farm equipment. Alexander Nicholson has a long history of working on this farm. Another key project was a 45-ton timber bridge.
