Overbeek Backyard Barn
John and Joanne Overbeek needed a practical and good-looking 572-square-foot space for their animals.
The challenge was to find a construction material that gives the animals protection from perilous weather conditions, as well as a material that can withstand the extreme temperatures in Ontario’s humid summers and frigid winters. The clients also wanted a design that would be timeless, durable for many decades to come that requires little maintenance.
Tilt Wall was chosen because its tilt-up concrete panels have fewer thermal breaks to allow outside temperatures to affect the animals, while simultaneously helping to retain heat. The panels were cast on the ground, and custom form liners were used to give the concrete four unique design elements.
The panels were cast on temporary slabs and were raised in less than one day. Last we heard is that our clients (and their animals) are still absolutely loving their space.
