With some creativity and an admirable ability to live in an unconventional space, the family has made the space not only livable, but also beautiful.
Corey Gash, a window display artist, had always wanted to live in a more rustic environment. And he fell in love with the look and feel of the barn. In an LA Times interview he says: "The first time I saw it, I thought it was an amazing space with great bones. I'd always wanted to live in a barn."
The family moved into the barn and remodeled it—adding a bathroom and giving the space an open, comfortable feeling.
Utilizing reclaimed materials throughout (bowling lane wood is used beautifully as a kitchen table), the family proves that creative reuse can be done on a gigantic scale.
