Modern Meets Rustic in this Barn Remodel

Lately, we have been intrigued by the idea of adaptive reuse. So when we were asked to join Futuro Construction on a total gut and remodel of an 1850’s barn into a modern family home, we jumped at the opportunity!

Here are some before pictures to give you an idea of the sheer scale of this remodel, so that you can better appreciate the final product.



We loved watching a modern, cohesive and eco-friendly home emerge from beams and sawdust.

For their kitchen, the homeowners chose sleek, gloss white cabinets and unobtrusive appliances. Aesthetic balance was key, so that the exposed original beams and two story high ceilings remain the focal points.

Minimal, full-overlay cabinetry, a wine rack custom built from repurposed wood from the barn, and a show stopping, full length chartreuse tile backsplash provide the perfect amount of character and color.

Look at those impressive beams!

Here are a few more shots of the rest of the house…

Antique chairs, modern art, steel cables, wooden beams, white walls and industrial pendant lights. Yes, please!

What a great space! We are thrilled to have been asked to contribute to this barn remodel. The homeowners and contractors at Futuro Construction were a pleasure to work with and we are proud to have our name associated with this project.

As always, you can find us on Houzz.
