Refurbish old barns
Barn Residence Exterior

I just can’t help sharing things I find that are unique or just crazy creative!!

This is a barn turned into a house!!  A barn!!   It is located in the country of New York.
The couple found this Dutch influenced barn that dated back to the 1800’s.  The high ceilings and great concept gave them inspiration to use it for their “country home”.

They found a very creative architect, Preston Cohen, to help them put this idea into an actuality.  After purchasing the barn they had it disassembled and reconstructed on their lot, keeping it as authentic as possible.  They reinforced the barn’s stability with a steel frame which allowed 48 windows to be strategically placed to not only enhancing the views but showing  the details of the interior.
I found this article on Dwell magazines online site, April 2008.  Follow this link if you want to know more:
