Placed right in the center of the historic district, the original exterior of Ray’s Barn was awe-inspiring, but time and weather had taken it’s toll on the interior. To save and restore this classic, we were audacious enough to rebuild the foundation, framing, and roof, creating an entirely new building inside of the amazing antique exterior.
The result is a modern retreat with a full bar, bath, killer sound and media package on the inside; in a generations-old barn still standing tall in defiance of Father Time himself.

What was an old barn is now a posh little country bar. The juxtaposition of exterior vs interior is unexpected. When you approach the barn, it building still boasts all of its original forms and features (though maintained) while the inside has been completely rebuilt down to the footings and foundation. We designed and built a brand new building inside of the old. This was a very labor intensive project though worth every bit of the hard work.
Sand blasted and oiled steel door conceal the media center that is tied into the fully integrated sound system. If you happen to be strolling through the historic hamlet of Carversville, PA and you feel the ground shaking, the vibrations are probably coming from this little red barn. Its a super secret hideout that nobody knows about. Very cool.

Old Barn plank flooring was reused as wall panels and interior doors. The surface of the planks were brush sanded and installed naturally without any coating.
