Timber Barn, Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania

Maggie lives on a small farm nestled into a lush north facing valley on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania. She approached Beachouse to assist her with the design of a traditional timber barn to compliment the existing authentic and delightfully rustic buildings on her property. The lower level of the timber barn houses animals such as goats and pigs, bee hives, a hot house and cool room, while the loft will be used for drying, storing and spinning. The traditional timber structure is solid timber post and beam with wall panels on the lower level to be infilled with wattle and daub. The entire project is a labour of love for Maggie and all others involved. Her beautiful barn merges into its idyllic surroundings where it will serve its working life for many years to come.
