Barns might typically be associated with farmland, but in today’s market, they have functions beyond just housing animals and farm equipment. More specifically, barns are becoming desirable options for wedding and event venues. Timber frame “party barns” are trending as one of the top venue choices for wedding ceremonies and receptions thanks to what brides are calling “rustic chic.” These barns have a casual appeal that provides an alternative to formal banquet halls or upscale hotel celebrations.
The open design and natural materials used in timber frame barns help provide this casual mood, setting a memorable scene for any size event. Using timber frames brings the outdoors inside, and by simply adding barn-style sliding doors, you allow for a transition between interior and exterior entertaining. The timbers and trusses bring an instant focal point to a barn’s design by creating tall and dramatic ceilings. Building your barn out of timber frames also adds longevity to the structure thanks to the durability of the materials and craftsmanship involved in timber frame construction.
