Originally built to house a garage, workshop and wood storage, this classic barn has been gently re-imagined into a unique guesthouse with a rustic accents and modern comforts.

The focus of the interior was to preserve and accentuate the barn features as much as possible, and have a warm and cozy, energy efficient guest house. Programming included two bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining area, farmhouse kitchen and pantry, living room and laundry room.
