Architect: Charlie & Co. Design, Location: Saint Paul, Minnesota

Architect: Barry Price, Location: Woodstock, New York

From the project uploader: "2 Barns is a four-acre property overlooking the Ashokan Resevoir. Both buildings are contemporary barn-like structures designed by architect Barry Price. Both structures are 100 percent wheelchair accessible, and both meet passive house specifications."

4. Stable Conversion

A wood-burning fireplace in Stable Conversion creates a sense of home. The project by SHED Architecture + Design is full of light and intended as a flexible space for guests, a home office, or a creative space.

Architect: SHED Architecture + Design, Location: Seattle, Washington

From the architect: "Located in a Seattle suburb, this detached stable and garage had fallen into disuse by the time the current owners purchased the property. The couple, a painter and a digital designer with no horses to call their own, decided to enclose and convert the stable into a flexible studio space for working and painting, with a guest space for visiting family. In addition to the open studio space, the new design includes a full bathroom, a utility sink, and private quarters, and it could easily be converted into an accessory dwelling unit in the future."

5. Dickerman Residence

The energy-efficient Dickerman Residence by Richard Pedranti Architect boasts warm wood ceilings, midcentury-inspired furnishings, and a stately stone fireplace.

Architect: Richard Pedranti Architect, Location: Narrowsburg, New York

From the architect: "The design goal was a cost- and energy-efficient retreat house that settled lightly on the landscape. The building is on piers and has the feel of a tree house set on the edge of a wildflower meadow with views to the lake and forest. The primary features of this weekend retreat house are its simple, open form and clean aesthetic. It emphasizes natural materials including a stone fireplace, Douglas fir interior finishes, and indoor/outdoor rooms with a visual connection to the natural setting. The open plan also includes private spaces and features that make it a perfect writer’s retreat."
