Barn Completion


I loved this crumbling building the minute I laid eyes on her and I knew that one day I would be able to nurse her back to health.
For years, she sat unoccupied except for a few woodchucks and the three horse stalls left by the previous owners of the farm. I would look back at her from my house and… think…dream…wonder..“What will she become?”
I wanted her to meet her full potential. I didn’t want to just “fix her up” on the outside, but instead, turn her into something magical. A place where our family will BE TOGETHER. A place where our children’s friends will enjoy visiting. A place where memories will be created. A place of well-being.


Down home friends and what they say...
