Stately Home

Located in Slagle, Idaho, this barn was repurposed into a large, rustic residence. The large windows ensure the interior is well-lit while the front porch is the perfect place to relax outdoors.

Rustic Living

Originally built in the 1800s, this renovated barn still possesses all of its country charm. From the sliding red doors to the rustic wood siding, this barn-turned-home looks like the quintessential dwelling place.

Home for the Cars

Even though this barn is not particularly old, it takes inspiration from many different historical buildings. This space is made unique due to the fact that it's now used to house automobiles.

The Party Barn

An open yard with small planted trees and shrubs allows this beautiful red party barn to shine in the evening light. Mulched areas create fluid lines from the perimeter into the yard. Landscape lighting dotted around the property creates a twinkling look.

Contemporary Home

With dark siding and a metal roof, this converted space boasts an ultra-contemporary exterior. Cedar details and an outdoor serving bar soften the look creating an overall inviting feel.

Quaint Guest Suite

As appealing as a gingerbread house, this guest suite peeks out from behind aspen trees. Walls of glass let its lovely surroundings be a constant part of the interior.

Country Pool House

Weathered wood siding, a metal roof and stone pathway ensure this barn-turned-pool house has every necessary rustic detail to make it the perfect outbuilding.

Big Red Family Barn

This incredible family home was created out of a renovated barn. The entire exterior received new board and batten wood siding and a seamed metal roof.

Remodeled Living Space

A large sliding door covers the glass doors of this green barn that was converted to a loft. The sliding doors make it easy to let the outdoors in for simple entertaining.

The exterior of the remodeled home features barn-style garage doors, a tin roof and clean, white siding. A large tree in the front yard and well-placed landscaping makes this barn home look perfectly perched in its surroundings.

A Tiny Barn

This tiny barn was turned into a tiny home. A roof overhangs the adorable porch, trimmed with string lights. Adirondack chairs make a comfy spot to relax and enjoy the evening outdoors.

Large-Scale Man Cave

Although the entire barn wasn't converted into a living space, the second floor of the large barn was transformed into the ultimate man cave.

Southerwestern Style

Renovated inside and out, this barn was converted into a Southerwestern-style home. The large porch is decorated with curtains and furniture, creating a indoor-outdoor living space.

Unassuming Guest Space

From the double doors to the lion statues, the front of this barn-turned-guest house is rich with symmetry. The windows balance the structure, too, and fill the interior with natural light.

Poolside Entertainment

Off the main Vermont farmhouse, the entertainment barn opens to a covered terrace with outdoor fireplace. A bluestone patio surrounds the pool, which contrasts against the rustic vibe of the barn with its sleek, contemporary lines.

Designed simply, but with every modern touch, this barn has a welcoming entrance and provides the perfect place to relax. The covered porch mixes a warm cedar plank ceiling with metal corrugated siding to create a down-home country feel.
