One of two true round barns in California, this structure owned by the City of Santa Rosa was in dire straights. It had been used as a storage building by the City at their Corporation Yard for several decades. The site was used for affordable housing, a sweat equity project Alan B. Cohen, Architect designed. The Round Barn was left over on a site that was turned into a neighborhood park. The barn was stabilized, new curved siding was fabricated (laminated from three layers of clear Redwood glued together on a 8′ drum) and the cupola was removed with a crane, disassembled, repaired and reassembled.
