    The carriage house at the rear of this 1820 built clapboard house in Woodstock, Vermont retains the wooden boards of the exterior. The double garage doors are of standard design and function. But when the owners of the Woodstocker Inn painted the main building and the south elevation of the carriage house a bright yellow, those who entered suspected they might find an unconventional approach to New England historic design, craftsmanship and hospitality.

    The main room cathedral space is anchored by a hand built maple and walnut staircase, with its own integrated lighting system. The stunning corrugated expanse along the whole length of the main room gives a dramatic contrast to the new barn board north elevation and the old barn born used in small discreet areas.

    The dining table top is made from a single piece of pine from a fallen tree from a local property. It's wrought iron legs were custom made by a local farrier.

    Upstairs the combined wet room and bathroom includes a hand built six feet long soaking tub with a river stone surface. The ceiling is cedar wood.

    The bricks in the underfloor heated hallway came from an old chimney previously attached to the back of the building which had to be dismantled. Old barn board and new maple are used in partnership for the doors.

    The entrance way also doubles as a mud room with a shower wet room.
