A New England Barn Reinvented
I am a sucker for properties that have been reinvented and combine old with new. I love the idea of respecting history while looking to the future.
The rebuild of this New England barn fits the bill for me. Funny thing is I normally abhor the “barn shape” of houses. There was one house in our old neighbourhood that I ranted about its design almost every time I passed it. However, this barn was taken apart piece by piece and the traditional barn shape is no where to be found.
It was rebuilt leveraging the patina of the beams and rafters, the reclaimed flooring and the uneven plaster walls to create an open space that feels cosy and suits a modern family.
I love the open spaces and the steel beams. I love that the you can see the 300 year old beams of the old farmhouse in every space. This would make a good home for me.
What do you think?
