The Converted Barn

No living room chairs. I’ve been promised that they will be finished this week but I am not holding my breath. Still, it would be nice since we have houseguests arriving on Friday.

Instead I bring you a converted barn that cousin Sweet T. sent me via realtor.com. In the subject line she had typed “Freak Out”.

Indeed.

There aren’t many homes that I think “I could move in just as is but this one….well, just see for yourself.

Look at those floors!

I have never seen a railing quite like this and I am completely captivated. It reminds me of something you would find in a Gothic church.

 

The kitchen is cozy perfection. I adore the painted floors.

Let’s travel to the second floor.

I could definitely write DTA posts here.

Catch up on my reading here.

Sweet dreams indeed.

So clever how they used an old door as a partition.

This gem is located in Doyelstown, PA so I have to take a pass, but it might be perfect for you!

Oh wow, I could move into that in a heartbeat! I love the way they made the diamonds on the kitchen floor and still leaving the brown wood. This is beautiful. I wonder if it could be moved to Wisconsin. ;-)

What a beautiful home. When I was a young girl I read Grace Livingstone Hill's The Enchanted Barn and ever since then I've had a dream of converting a barn to a home. This is a stunning example of what can be done with lots of vision (and likely a fair chunk of cash). I can see it on our island here, somewhere overlooking the ocean.

Oh, my goodness! LOVE! These people paid exceptional attention to the floors...the wood and paint and rugs. Sigh! And the layering, there are so many examples throughout the home. Pictures over pictures over doors over walls. What a great place!
