New River Bank Barn - I love this concept; already have a deep red all brick home on a sloped lot very similar to the photo. It has a walk out basement (partially underground). What I don't like about the current home is with a basement which makes the house look like it's sitting directly on the ground (without a foundation), it looks "short". The windows are short and I hate them. By covering the outside with siding and combining a double 63" picture window with the current front door; it's possible I could use a similar entry like New River. Also incorporate raising the roof and adding the shed for parking below on my current downward slope, with a kitchen door access to the above deck. What do you think?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to On an Architect's Bucket List: To Live in a Barn
Barns are all about simple, big shapes and are all the better when painted bright red. With big doors that slide left and right, a barn, like Noah's Ark, is a welcome place of refuge.
Amy Renea added this to Country Style Gets an Urbane Update
Country barns were traditionally painted red, a custom that began because the ingredients for red-hued natural paint were readily accessible. The main ingredient likely was red iron oxide. Interested in more about the history of barn red and farmhouse white? Visit GRIT to learn more.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to When to Paint Your Home Red
By the big red barnIn the great green field ...Margaret Wise Brown put it best in her book Big Red Barn. Simple, bold and bright, the iconic big red barn seen across the U.S. landscape evokes memories of rural history and a simpler time.

Focus on the glass doors. I don't like the transom about, but the French doors with matching windows on the left and right are a possibility. Also like the barn doors on either side of the windows and doors.
