Middlebury Barn Renovation|Middlebury, Vermont

The challenge in this project was to transform an existing 100 year old hay barn into a modern three bedroom home. The design incorporates both old and new – the antique timber frame contrasts with contemporary steel stairs and railings while new energy efficient windows sit next to salvaged barn doors. The west facing barn takes advantage of spectacular Adirondack views; a large steel balcony allows occupants to sit outdoors on the second level.

Located in Middlebury Vermont, the renovated barn sits on a new foundation. The sloping site gives access on two levels with a two car garage on the lower lever and a front door on the main level where the hay wagons once entered.
