The exterior design of the barn was inspired by barns in the late 1800s / early 1900s that featured “monitor” designs which aided air circulation throughout the structure, improving the health of the cows.
This property is ideal for a large family, someone who has frequent guests, a hobbyist who needs work space, someone with a home business or a gardener (vegetables, flowers). The radiant floor heated 3-bay garage with extra wide doors would make a great workshop for woodworking, car / boat restoration, auto detailing, computer repair, small scale brewery, art studio & art gallery, screen printing….

We operated a Web-based mail-order business with employees from this property for over twenty years. When we had the Monitor Barn built in 2011 we included features anticipating a new owner’s use to accommodate several employees in a home-based business and even had kitchen plumbing installed should a new owner want to make the Monitor Barn into stand-alone living space. The buildings are configured for those who need lots of storage space, a home-based business and/or families that have diverse activities going on concurrently. Richmond is also a very business-friendly town that encourages home-based businesses.
