The Berry Barn: Taking Shape


Berry is a popular holiday destination and the demand for unique accomodation has never been higher. Friends of Timber Artistry decided that a secondary dwelling on their property in Berry would be the perfect place to accomodate weary travellers and exhausted Sydney-siders. 

Familiar with Timber Artistry’s unique style, the couple requested a barn style secondary dwelling. The ‘barn’ would include a bathroom, kitchenette and living space with a mezzanine bedroom and cathedral open pitch ceiling. Working from scratch Timber Artistry’s scope of work included pouring the concrete slab, construction of framed walls and corrugated iron roofing.

Aesthetic elements include exposed rafter ceiling with painted timber beams and V-joint lining boards. French doors and windows were installed along with new weatherboards and cladding to the external walls. 

To round out this project a new pergola with v-joint lining boards on the ceiling is constructed and attached to the barn, providing an outdoor space, as well as protection from the sun and rain.
