Home / Showcase / Telluride Dutch Barn

“The grandest and most elegant barns ever built in America.”
— John Fitchen, Architectural Historian

This New York Dutch barn, built circa 1770, is now a Colorado mountain ski home with multiple floors. The antique wood floors complement the hand-hewn beams and the flat-finished walls add a clean look to the home. The gable roof line was raised from the slope of a traditional Dutch barn.

  • We purchased a Dutch Barn frame to form the heart of our home in Telluride, Colorado. From beginning to end, we had a wonderful experience with Heritage Barns. We watched the men from Heritage raise our frame after a big snow storm. It was wonderful to watch these talented craftsmen carefully obstruct our frame. Our home is now complete, and we could not be happier. Every room has exposed beams, constantly reminding us of the history of our structure and the talent and care taken by Heritage to make it possible.

    Love what’s been done with these old barns! You can really say, “Yes, I WAS raised in a barn!”.
