Town council gets a new barn
December 20, 2011 · Updated 2:53 PM
The Coupeville Town Council last week accepted the Holbrook Barn, a historic structure located on North Main Street near the library.
With its approval, local builder and owner Dan Miranda will make good on his agreement to move the barn to the community green located behind the library. That agreement also states he will have to build a foundation and install the barn at the new site. The project is expected to cost him approximately $20,000.
Miranda asked to move the barn to make room on the property to build a new two-story home. The council also approved a conditional use permit to allow construction of the new home.
Once the barn is moved, it will be stable but its still needs a new roof. The roof could be a project for the upcoming field school organized by Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, according to information provided by the town of Coupeville.
