This monitor-style workshop in Fall City, Washington originated as a Powell Monitor Barn Kit from DC Structures and underwent major engineering upgrades to achieve its highly customized design. These upgrades include widening the structure from 36′ to 46′, incorporating a heavy timber framed center aisle loft, and performing double-wall construction for all exterior walls. As the site of our client’s manufacturing business, we were tasked with crafting a barn design centered around efficiency. To maximize operations, we designed the raised center aisle in a way that allows our client and their team to lift products and materials from the bottom level to the top with ease. Even with its heavy-duty upgrades, this barn maintains its rustic charm, with Douglas fir and cedar siding that gives it that classic barn appearance. Inside, heavy timber accents provide unparalleled warmth throughout the space.

Upstairs, you’ll find a large wet bar, gaming room, custom seating area, and built-in bunk beds perfect for overnight guests. Another aspect that makes this barn-style residence so enjoyable for visitors is its cabin-like rustic interior. With its warm heavy timber design and nature-inspired decor, this workshop with living quarters makes you feel right at home after a long and likely chilly day on the hunt.
Located in the countryside of Damascus, Oregon, this backyard barn-style structure serves as both a mini getaway and a place for our clients to entertain family and friends.

Custom features in this structure include open riser timber frame stairs, steel-framed sliding doors with glass inserts, and a 12’ x 12’ deck with cedar railings. Inside, our clients can enjoy a completely custom all-wood bar, man and lady cave area, workshop, mudroom, and plenty of storage space.

A log spiral staircase with rod iron handrails takes you to the upstairs loft, where French doors lead to a large covered deck and a wet bar. Two Nantucket shed dormers and a custom cupola gives the exterior its distinct barn-style appearance, while copper wainscoting accentuates the fine cedar batten and board siding.
