My Houzz: Tim: Akron, Ohio

Tucked neatly into an existing bay of the barn, the open kitchen is a comfortable hub of the home. Rather than create a solid division between the kitchen and the children's TV area, Franklin finished only the lower portion of the post-and-beam supports.

The ladder is one of the original features of the barn that Franklin could not imagine ever removing. Cleverly integrated into the support post, its original function allowed workers to climb above large haystacks and pick and toss hay down a chute to the feeding area below. Franklin's children, 10 and 14, also enjoy this aspect of their home. "The kids and their friends run, slide, climb up the ladder and have a ton of fun," he explains, "It’s a barn! It is a place to share with friends and family."

Where are the stools from?

Hi there! The stools are reclaimed from a local bar that was closing, and are many decades old. The homeowner had cleaned them up and installed them. Maybe try Etsy for great vintage finds, or if open to the idea of ordering from overseas, Retrouvious offers some great finds. Their stock is rotating, so it pays to make frequent visits. http://retrouvius.com. I hope I have helped a little! Thanks for the asking.
