Old barns converted into beautiful family homes!

Historic barns turned into functional living spaces



I spent the better part of this weekend scrubbing out my barn and stalls by hand this weekend due to a broken pressure washer, so I have barns on the brain.  Our barn is just a small metal pole barn with two stalls, but it doesn't make it hard to imagine the amazing open concept layout someone could create with a grand old barn of wood or stone.  Here are some pretty examples I found.


I love the contrast of the dark wood floors and the white walls and beams.

If the wood is kept dark, it's a good idea to incorporate large windows for natural light and white or light walls (unless you like dark interiors!)

I'm not a fan of taxidermy as decor, but that door opening to the yard is pretty fantastic!

Beautiful light stone and natural wood floors make this barn conversion quaint and pretty.

I think the photo above and below are from the same barn.  I don't know if I could live on concrete floors, but I like the white plank walls and the rustic furnishings.

Okay, this may not be for everyone, but how amazing would it be to be able to keep watch over and observe your animals while going about your daily household duties!

So pretty in every way!  The large windows, vaulted ceiling, and character-rich hardwood floors are so pretty.

The barn exteriors are often just as beautiful as the interiors!

Love the idea of repurposing the barn. Love the look of the high ceilings and large windows overlooking the land. The whole country vibe screams Texan. Add some ranch decor from Brumbaughs to fill out the look for some full-on western living. Love it!

The whole place has a lot of light, which makes it even better. Absolutely love it.
