Oakland-based designers Tolya and Otto Stonorov quit their day jobs at architectural firms to take on the daunting task of renovating a 100 year-old, 400 square foot barn into a home for their budding family. It took eight months, but the pair accomplished the seemingly impossible with style and substance to spare...We love that the deep window ledges double as seating outside and a landing strip inside. Dwell's article includes renovating anecdotes (beware the falling rat feces!) and a photo gallery from of the home.
