I have a barn obsession. I love the shape of barns. I've drawn lots of different plans for a barn-style house over the years. The simplicity of this shape is what draws me to them - clean lines, rustic in design. Whenever I see an old barn I get shivers down my spine. I love driving past the ones nearby and dreaming about how wonderful they'd be as converted nests.
There are a couple of stone barns in the valley that I regularly dream about. They are gorgeous! I must get pictures of them and when I do I'll post them here for you all to enjoy.
How cute is this? What a beautiful wood shed.
This American style is gorgeous. I love this red. So traditional for American sheds.
This is a European barn house. Modern, yet barny!
I love this red!
I love corrugated iron. It's so Aussie and rustic. I love it's simplicity and it's industrial feel. It is not pretentious in any way. It's the most honest of cladding:)
What a lovely modern take on the barn! This would be a dream to live in - light filled, spacious, open, taking advantage of aspect. It doesn't lack the charm of yesteryear either but has all the contemporary comforts too.
This is inside a barn house that a once local architect designed for a client in the southern highlands.
So too, this. He has talent!
I love golden timber on silver corrugated iron.
English barn conversion.
Church - barn conversion.
Rustic and lovely. Faded timber and stone....sooooo natural.
I can so see myself in one of these barns, overlooking a beautiful green valley, mountains surrounding, a river not too far away. Dream, dream, dream...
