DeConstruction Services is finishing up a project just south of Sherwood, OR where a barn was deconstructed on a 58 acre farm. The property was purchased by Community by Design LLC, small farm incubator in an effort to explore alternate models of small-scale agriculture. close to the Portland metro area. The property will be tended to by multiple farming families who will operate independent small farming businesses. Their “overarching goal is to pursue a permaculture approach to farming and land stewardship.” Learn more about Community by Design LLC Community by Design LLC
The new owners worked deconstruction into their budget because they saw the value in the materials in the barn and did not want to see them wasted. The materials from the deconstructed barn will be saved and be used to rebuild a couple barns on the property.
After the barn was deconstructed you could see the full impact and beauty of the space. The property has a year-round creek (Rock creek) and pond, water rights for irrigation, a total of three lots and three residences, varying topography, ~17 acres of mature blueberries and a lovely view of Mount Hood.
