A Michigan Road homeowner is seeking permission from the Planning & Zoning Commission to build a 1.5-story barn in a wooded area of the approximately 6.5-acre property. The 34-by-36-foot post-and-beam barn designed for 142 Michigan Road “will be painted ‘barn red’ and have a cedar shingle roof as does the main house on the property,” according to an application filed on behalf of the property’s owner, Ellipsis Partners LLC. “It will have multiple windows, a dormer, a cupola and swing-out doors that will provide visual interest and will be in harmony with the features of our home. The land immediately around the barn is wooded and will remain so, and will be lightly landscaped in a natural manner similar to the landscaping on the rest of the property. The barn will have electricity, but no running water or septic, and is intended to be used for storage and will provide visual interest to the southwest side of the property.
