The natural beauty of this barn’s western red cedar plank is the primary focus of this unfinished barn and sliding barn door. In time, the entire structure will weather to a stunning silvery look. People who love the timelessness of wood but do not want the weathering can replicate this look – and still protect their custom doors – by using a flat, clear finish.
This project’s sliding entrance doors were hand crafted to blend seamlessly with the rest of the barn. The integrated transom and antique track and trolley system break up the lines of the doorway allowing the wood grain to continue, uninterrupted, across the entire building. On sunny days, sunlight can enter the barn through the transom windows and doorlights, or windows within the barn doors, while evenings are lit with a well-placed lighting fixture.
