    SO BEAUTIFUL. Wow I’m in complete shock.

    Megan Wells says:

    So stinkin cool. Someone buy me an old barn, asap!

    Anonymous says:

    Wow! And it almost looks like they used charred Cedar on the outside! Charring the wood protects it from insects, moisture damage and even makes it some what fire proof. Love it!

    just nerded out there a little bit! :)

    Anna Z says:

    Ahh! This is pretty incredible.

    I love the idea of living in an old barn! Talk about upcycling :) From Brooklyn with love ~jen

    wow, very minimal and chic!

    Lizzy Lee says:

    I love the yo
    and everything else about it! x

    Laura Dolph says:

    Love the barn exterior and all those exposed ceiling trusses and brick walls. And the YO in the bedroom! Didn’t love so much all the plywood cubbies, partitions, bed frames, etc… I dunno. Anyone else?

    Mandi says:

    I enjoy the concept, for sure! But I agree with Laura. The OSB board looks pretty junky. Even plywood would look better than the OSB. But I get the concept- inexpensive and sustainable.

    Seriously almost posted about this too. Great minds, great minds. xo

    Love to get an old barn and transform it into a modern retreat, these lucky fools ; )

    thanks for sharing this, i reposted it on my bloggity blog.

    have a super weekend darling!

    I am sending my mom these pictures! My parents recently bought a farm in South Dakota that they’ll be renovating and living in come this summer…this idea is just so cool to me, and it’s awesome to see that others had/have the same plan :)

    Oh wow! And that dining area is just a dream- plenty of room for all your friends and then some! LOVES.

    The exterior shot is great!

    I giggled when I saw the interior shot with a funny caption over at Unhappy Hipsters:

    Debie says:

    Wow! Very simple yet pretty!

    Anonymous says:

    I’m sorry, but are you people for real? This is the ugliest thing I have ever seen!

    Wow, this place is FAB. Uh…anonymous, everyone has different tastes. Obviously you don’t like it…but I do. And that should be okay :-)

    i love the “yo”. too cool!

    Laura Mason says:

    I wonder if that wood is splintery though, I would be nervous that walking on it or sitting on it I would be covered in splinters or my clothes snagged

    Queen Mother says:

    I’m sure they treated it with some kind of clear
    finish to keep it from being splintery, at least on the dining room benches.

    Hello! Just discovered your handsome blog, and am being extremely inspired by it! I LOVE this renovated barn – so unusual and minimal and functional! Good to think outside the box. I designed, converted and built the interior to my van, and turned it into a livable space. You can have a peek here:

    So I am always interested in seeing how people convert living spaces, and I love this so much. Thank you for sharing. I featured this wonderful post pon my blog, you can see it here if you wish:
