Brodt Dairy: Steel Livestock Barn
Asymmetrical Building Configuration with Clerestory
Brodt Dairy is an organic milk provider in the northern, coastal side of California. A second CBC project for Brodt Dairy, this free-stall feed livestock barn is built with galvanized steel in an asymmetrical configuration, with an offset gable clerestory. A piggy-back lean-to frame creates the 2’-6” high monitor portion of the barn, which remains open for ventilation.
The rear of the barn is open, with the remaining walls and roof enclosed with CBC’s standard R-Panel. Additional natural lighting is provided by the 25 translucent wall panels that line each side of the building.
