A Barn In Connecticut...


I'm so excited to tell you about one of our new projects...
It is a new barn in Litchfield County Connecticut.

I have always dreamed of re-purposing a barn into a home and even went to the extent of looking at a couple of dilapidated barns to buy for my own personal residence so this project will be extra fun!

The folks at Harvest Moon Timber Frame in Morris, CT
will be building the barn.  

Preliminary sketches....


The barn will serve three distinct functions:

1. Storage of the client's antique car collection
2. Large party & entertaining space
3. Guest suite with bunk area for kids
4. A half court for basketball

The clients and I have both agreed on a gray and white color scheme for the exterior.  We will leave the beautifully rustic beam structure exposed on the interior.  A balcony overlooking the woods is planned and we will implement large windows to bring the outside in.  The clients want a soft-industrial look for the furnishings and we will discuss options for bath/kitchen finishes over the next few weeks.

It's thrilling to work on such a creative space and bring the client's unique vision to life!

Until Next Time,
