    The largest barn in Kansas was donated to the Prairie Museum of Art & History by brother and sister, Gary Cooper and Mary Pawlus. The Cooper Barn had to be moved 16 miles to the site in Colby, Kansas.

    These things stir the imagination. Funny how we never outgrow that.

    A New Barn with a New Story.......!

    "Join us on this incredible barn build in central Iowa. Feel the tension & excitement in the air as the team prepares to build one of our largest barns to date: a 64' x 152' Timber Frame Gambrel-Style Barn. After carefully crafting all the joinery in our Ellington, CT shop, 6 truckloads of timber are delivered to the job site in Iowa, and the crew arrives on site."

    "Assembling a timber frame of this scale is no easy task, and the teamwork, experience, and determination of our crew comes into play as the barn takes shape and the oak pegs secure each connection. Follow the story from frame to finish, and marvel at the epic completed exterior and breathtaking interior."

    "Building on the style of early Americans, whose 1800s-era post & beam barns still dot the landscape today, this massive timber frame barn is just as authentic, and will serve & inspire for generations to come."
