Converted barn house offers idyllic getaway in foothills of East Cascades

MW|Works Architecture+Design is responsible for this beautiful converted barn house project, located in the eastern foothills of the Cascades, Washington. The scope of the project entailed the conversion of a turn of the century working barn into a spacious 3,875 square foot, three-bedroom retreat from the city.

The building was restored with the intention of creating a comfortable home while retaining much of its original form, character and history. Siding, paneling, flooring, even fixtures and doors were sourced from either the original building or salvage yards. A panel wall of apple crates and a large custom light fixture over the dining table were fabricated from materials found in the fields around the barn.

New interventions were carefully considered to have a modern aesthetic while at the same time working within this raw palette. A blend of preservation and intervention, this project updates an aging barn without losing sight of its history.

What We Love: This converted barn house provides its owners with a dreamy getaway to enjoy the tranquility of nature. We love the melding of rustic architecture mixed with modern elements to provide an overall attractive design aesthetic. Custom features such as the fireplace adds a unique touch. The surroundings of this home are breathtaking, we would feel immediately relaxed spending some time vacationing here!

Tell Us: What do you think, would this be your idea of the ultimate retreat to get away from it all? Please share your thoughts in the Comments!

Note: Have a look at another home tour that we have featured here on One Kindesign from the portfolio of the architects of this home, MW Works Architecture+Design: Case Inlet Retreat with amazing views over Puget Sound.
