The Foundation is thrilled to receive a second gift of $25,000 from the Helen G., Henry F., and Louise Tuechter Dornette Foundation toward renovating the Loft in October of 2016, bringing their total to $50,000. This significant amount will be dedicated to construction costs associated with Phase I of the Loft renovation project: insulation, new roof, skylights, and an HVAC system. The number of annual visits to the Barn has tripled in the last five years, and we are very lucky to have 3600 sq. feet on the second floor (the original Hayloft for "Resthaven Barn") available for expansion. The plan is to retain the historic look of the Loft by insulating between the walls and on the exterior of the roof, showcasing all that 90-year old original wood and rafters that soar to a 20' peak. In addition, skylights will be installed on the North side of the roof, to keep the historic look of the Barn from the street, while allowing that beautiful northern light to help illuminate the space.
