This beautiful barn has been renovated by Seattle based architects Shed. According to the architects who both designed and built the barn: “the project involved the conversion of a barn into living space supporting a variety of activities and guests. The program called for a workroom/kitchen, an apartment, a bunk room, and bathrooms to be arranged within the existing building envelope.”

Each space was developed around a minimal palette of materials and color, with extensive re-use of existing barn materials. Some of these materials included the re-use of the original barn siding for interior paneling, re-milling of salvaged floor joists for stair material, trim and counter tops.

Emphasis was placed on durability and directness of design solutions with the aim of creating practical and unique results.
