Residential Barn Renovation

By Brian Ki, P.E. | June 15, 2022

We recently had a client who wished to convert their 1800’s unfinished barn into an in-law apartment in Derry, NH. The exterior aesthetics had its own antique characteristics that the client wanted to maintain, while the interior was in very poor structural condition.

Team Engineering helped design an architectural design to meet the clients wants and needs, while also stabilizing and reinforcing the old structure. The structural design involved new eccentric concrete footings, steel moment frames, engineered wood materials, and more. With the help of M&M American Builders of NH, construction is now complete and the client’s in-laws have moved in. The space has turned out wonderful and the client couldn’t be happier!

Take a look at these before and after photos. The interior before photo is not taken with a skewed photographic lens and, yes, the floor is visibly out of level!
