Historic Banting Homestead Barn [East side looking North]
from an original watercolour (2010) by Jill Sadleir,
The image measures 7″w x 9″h and comes complete with a mat, 13″w x 15.5″h
This barn was built in late 1916 after the previous barn burned in a threshing accident. It is based on a Beatty Bros. design of plank frame construction with a 90 ft x 42 ft ‘footprint’ and brick foundation, 3 bricks thick. Their BT Barn Book #26, 1917, describes the truss structure. Each truss required “706 Board feet at $47.00/1000 or $33.18/truss.” This barn used 9 trusses.
