I don't have floorplans available on this project. A short description would be the studio in the building to the right, in the silo is the kitchen, dining, sleeping loft and bathroom. In the left addition is the office, living room, master suite.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Round metal silos, or grain bins, are as common as cows and cornfields in the Midwest. But they are used almost exclusively for drying corn and wheat. The McDowells had a different idea for theirs.“We had an old one on this property. We had the idea to remodel it into a guesthouse. That didn’t work out, so we decided to use a new one,” says Mark, who grew up on a farm down the road from this land. “When Kelli saw it going up, she decided we should build our main house around it.”Grain bin: Brock
“When Kelli saw [the silo] going up, she decided we should build our main house around it.” — homeowner Mark McDowell, as told to Mary Jo BowlingThis stunning Missouri home balances local rural and contemporary architecture with a grain silo as its core.Full story: Houzz Tour: Going Against the Grain in a Missouri Silo
