What was once an aging barn on Whidbey Island, Washington is now a beautiful farmhouse that pays homage to its heritage, inside and out. Old wood from the exterior is used extensively inside, making this a wonderfully green renovation.
Designed and built by Seattle firm Shed Architecture and Design, the existing barn was split up into various living areas: a kitchen, living space, bunk room, and upstairs apartment. The second story is comprised of a large living space with generous windows to allow for natural light and a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside.
Green features include extensive use of the original barn siding, skylights and dormers for extra lighting, and stairs, trim and counter-tops made from salvaged floor joist.
