Reclaimed Barn Turns into Beautiful House for Guests

Small Guest HouseWhile working on another remodeling project, the architects discovered an old barn on an adjacent lot that they thought could be turned into a small guest house. A comfortable and cozy place for visitors to stay. They were right!

Working with the owners, they transformed this old barn into a beautiful haven.

InteriorAs the barn itself was beyond repair, they chose to use the existing wood and rebuilt it entirely. Instead of redesigning it completely, they rebuilt it with the old building design in mind.

The end result is a new but old looking 714 square foot building that contains all the rooms that a full size home has. There is a gorgeous kitchen with a dining nook, a spacious living room with big windows that let in lots of light, two small bedrooms, a sleeping loft, a decent size bathroom with shower, and a deck that runs the length of the house.

Living RoomIt is all set on a nice piece of property that has a creek that runs along the property line.

An unusual addition with a small place is a one car garage that is built with the same look and feel of the house.

The end result? A beautiful small house inside and outside, set on a beautiful piece of property. The best part is that it was built from reclaimed materials.
