Safe Haven Farms is a non-profit organization offering residential, day and community services for individuals on the autism spectrum. It provides a variety of meaningful living, working, learning and leisure activities in a safe and accepting farm environment, where every individual is respected as a valued and contributing community member. An addition to the Madison Township, OH facility was made possible with the use of metal systems from American Buildings Company.
This new addition features American Buildings Clear Span, Rigid Frame Structure with beams spanning between the main frames to support the 8' x 8' x 12' (peak) Rigid Frame cupola. The top cupola is open to the finished area below and offers natural light into the center entry hall area. The rustic wood truss at the entrance canopy supports the roof secondary, which spans back to a hidden frame that is also supported by the main sidewall columns. Portal frames have been provided to eliminate sidewall bracing.
The roof system for the building and cupola is American's Loc Seam 16". The wall panels are Architectural III with wainscot panels matching the roof and trim on the building. Roof insulation system is Therm-All's High "R" Insulation System, with 8" of insulation between the purlins and 4" over the top of secondary purlins.
The American Buildings Company Builder was Fishbaugh & Sons Construction Co., Inc. of Middletown, OH. The architect was Joseph A. Brown.
