The Barn at Sycamore Farms, built on a historic property in Arrington, Tennessee, was designed to be a luxury event venue, suitable for corporate gatherings, 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, Tennessee. “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′ 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 Company crew. The roof color chosen was Sherwin-Williams Fluropon PVDF in Mansard Brown. Medallion-Lok effectively captures the elegance of a standing seam roof, because the narrow 1¾”-tall standing seams create crisp, clean visual lines. Medallion-Lok features hidden clips and a snap-together seam, which eliminates the need for job site seaming.
The owners at Sycamore Farms wanted their events center to be constructed with durable products, but also wanted it to have a “wow factor”—making it the dream place for weddings and parties.
