american and timber barns
With our focus on durability, aesthetic beauty, recycled materials and individual customisation, a Giddiup barn should be an individual work of art and a valuable addition to the countryside
Inspired by classic American and European timber framed buildings, our barns feature paired doors, gabled roofs, heavy structural systems and good ventilation. Not only do these architectural elements suit Australian conditions - creating maximum airflow and a cool internal environment – but the huge timber trusses create large open spaces that can be utilised for a multitude of purposes. Teamed with generous paired doors, these barns offer easy access for all types of machinery.
To create these barns, we source timber from old wharfs, railway bridges, boat hulls and country sale yards. This fabulous timber often has its own interesting history and is notable for its magnificent size.

Apart from being far more durable than anything available off-the-shelf, they add to the solid, rustic appeal of these buildings. Windows, door handles and shutters are usually antiques salvaged from a wide variety of locations, and clients are encouraged to be a part of this creative process.
MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR NATURAL RESOURCES
If you have a supply of timber on your property, we offer you the opportunity to have it milled on site. This allows your farm buildings to be created using the same authentic techniques that were used prior to 1900. More than just a rewarding process, milling home-grown timber forms a strong connection between the building and its environment.
