Michigan Barn farmhouse-family-room
 

Michigan Barn

As part of the Walnut Farm project, Northworks was commissioned to convert an existing 19th century barn into a fully-conditioned home. Working closely with the local contractor and a barn restoration consultant, Northworks conducted a thorough investigation of the existing structure. The resulting design is intended to preserve the character of the original barn while taking advantage of its spacious interior volumes and natural materials.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The loft is a nice perch from which to gaze out as one reads a book or takes a nap. And from this vantage point, the large openings in the barn's sides yield views to the exterior.

8. Build up in a barn. The rustic roof of this converted barn is one of its chief features. It is beautiful but also incredibly high, and while building codes might not have permitted a second floor in here, they have allowed the inclusion of a striking mezzanine. The mix of rustic original features and industrial style works brilliantly and brought this once-dilapidated barn up to date.
