This recently completed barn conversion is home to myself, my partner Chris and our dog, Gus. Almost everything you see was hand built ourselves including hand milled floors, railings and all the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry as well as some of the furniture. This conversion measures in at about 2,100 square feet and exists in what was the hayloft of the dairy barn.

We feel it would be perfect for Dwell because it's the labour of our love for interior and exterior design. We built it to be practical and welcoming. We utilized as many things as the property could provide for us and repurposed a lot of wood to make the space work. We heat the space with a wood burning stove and we burn our own wood from our land. We love hosting and have been told numerous times to feature it somewhere. We have finally decided to do so and hope you guys like it! Dwell has been a magazine we both love and we pulled a lot of our ideas from home's you've featured.

Thanks so much for your time!
Chris + Keith
