The Event Space is planned to be a 980 square foot, open concept, flexible room that will be available for rent.
We’re still working through the details of how we’ll structure and manage rentals, but we hope to make it available for private events such as rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers, birthdays and more.
We would also like to organize events, classes, and pop-up dining experiences for the public. Ideally, we’ll be able to host some events in collaboration with the Play Space to provide childcare while parents enjoy a night out.
Some of the planned features for Event Space include:
Occupancy for up to 65 people with tables and chairs, or 195 people without tables.
A feature wall of reclaimed oak barn boards enhanced with Lichtenberg figures, using a fractal burning process.
Two bathrooms, featuring reclaimed cedar siding burned using the shou sugi ban technique
A wall of roll-up glass garage doors for additional light and air movement.
Access to a certified commercial kitchen to store food for your event, or for use by your chosen caterer.
The certified commercial kitchen is another exciting aspect of the Brown County Barn Burner that we’re working through details on. The kitchen space is intended to have all the fixtures required for certification as an approved commercial kitchen (three-bay sink, hand washing sink, dishwasher, wipe-able surfaces, etc) and will also include a 4-burner gas cooktop, warming oven, reach-in fridge and freezer, ice machine, prep tables, and more.
We’d like to maximize the use of this space and make it possible for food-based business owners to rent the kitchen on an hourly basis, while also making the kitchen available for use during events, but those details still need to be worked out.
