BOSSIER CITY, La. — To replicate the traditional look of a barn for a wedding/events center, it would only make sense to top the facility with a metal roof.
The Barn at Sycamore Farms, built on a historic property in Arrington, Tenn., is designed to be a luxury event venue, suitable for corporate events, weddings and conventions. The Barn can accommodate more than 300 guests and is topped by 16,000 square feet of Medallion-Lok roofing panels from McElroy Metal.
“The panels were delivered in two stages,” said Sam Lamberth, owner of National Barn Company (Eastern Division) of Portland, Tenn. “Panels for the lower roof were delivered first and the panels for the upper roof came a couple weeks later. We craned panels to the roof and we needed a lift that could get us 120 feet up.”
The upper roof has a 7:12 pitch and the lower roof has a 4:12 pitch, so the upper roof provided a tougher challenge for the National Barn crew. The roof color chosen was Sherwin-Williams Fluropon PVDF Mansard Brown. Medallion-Lok effectively captures the elegance of a standing seam roof, because the narrow 1-3/4-inch-tall standing seam creates crisp, clean visual lines. Medallion-Lok features hidden clips and a snap-together seam, which eliminates the need for jobsite seaming.
DC Builders of Damascus, Ore., designed The Barn at Sycamore Farms. DC Builders is a nationwide design and construction firm with nearly two decades of experience crafting custom structures, ranging from timber frame homes in Oregon to barn-style equestrian estates in North Carolina.
The owners at Sycamore Farms wanted their events center to be constructed with durable products, but also wanted it to have a “Wow Factor” that made it the dream place for weddings and parties.
“With an elegant layout and a state-of-the-art sound system, the team at Sycamore Farms is proud to promise that any event taking place at The Barn makes for an unforgettable experience,” the owners boast on the website. “All 28 acres of the property exude the southern charm that makes Tennessee such a stunning state. From our 100-year-old Sycamore tree, to our custom 8-foot crystal chandelier, to the extensive in-house audio/video capabilities, The Barn at Sycamore Farms is the leading venue for your corporate, bridal or other needs at any season.”
