Our Barn Home - Before

Last Friday we closed on our new home, which is a barn and I was finally able to share that with everyone.  I have been having such a hard time not shouting it out to the world, but I wanted to make sure everything went through before I shared our exciting news.  Now I know you are all curious to see more of our barn and I am ready to share it with least the before pictures.

Another pic of the loft, can you tell I love this area?

I love the peg construction on the beam and those ax marks where the original builder back in 1900 cut the timbers for the barn....oh, the history there.
Upstairs is enormous!

One area in the Master bedroom...we have a view that looks out over the other side of the pond.

Another shot looking up to the loft...I love all the beams and wood in here.

I know it is a little rough looking and there is a lot of work to be done, but I can totally see how beautiful it is now and I can picture what it will look like when it is done.  I will definitely be sharing the progress with as we go, so keep checking back in.  What is your favorite feature that you see so far?  I would love to know.



  1. love it and I greatly am enjoying all of the pictures and watching the before and after all have already gotten a lot done in a few days

  2. Congrats on your new home! How exciting! I love all the handcrafted wood detail throughout.
