" When finished, the livery will stable people, not horses, and it will house them in luxurious suites complete with a breathtaking view of the countryside"

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, April 4, 1999
 
livery.jpg (52603 bytes) During the first six months of 1997, we dismantled this livery stable (shown right as it once stood in nearby Washington, PA) and moved it to the farm. From mid-February through the end of June, we spent every free moment (weekends, vacation days and nights after the time changed) dismantling. As with all our projects, we learned loads of new skills and enjoyed the opportunity to work together as a family.

This wonderful building, which we have called "The Livery" was slated for destruction as new houses were to be built were it stood. Our goal was to save it for future generations, restoring the outside and inside,  using the original wood and components as much as possible. Through the creative re-use of the stable as lodging accommodations we hope it will last until the next century, preserving a part of Washington County history.

Check out our "reconstruction photo album" for  photos of the dismantling and reconstruction.

Lodging in the livery includes three two-story suites. The bank barn's lower level is used for breakfasts and as a gathering place for guests.

The rooms are heated with gas-burning fireplaces. From the front, the livery  looks quite the same as before (see the picture top left); however, the back (photo second from bottom left), which  faces up the meadow, has a second story balcony, for enjoying the view from the guest suites.

The three suites at the Livery and the downstairs hall were opened on Memorial Day, 2004.

The Livery was repainted in the summer of 2012 and the patio in the rear was completed.
