I want to live in a Barn

By December 21, 2009Interior Design, Jessica


Did your parents ever ask loudly upon entering your room “This place is a pig sty, do you want to live in a barn?” Mine did. Oddly enough as obsessive compulsive as I am about cleaning now, I was the complete opposite as a child. I was a pint-sized hoarder, keeping notes and sneaking dishes up to my room to pretend I had my own place. ┬áNow I can proudly say I would live in a barn, if it was like the one above.

I saw Kelly and Ashlea’s renovated barn on Apartment Therapy today and exclaimed loudly “I want to live in this barn.” Is it not completely awesome? After seeing a house tour show on cable last year that featured a renovated barn in Wisconsin near where I was born, this beautiful renovated barn is not far from where my in-laws live in Southwest Missouri. Is fate trying to tell me something?

    Odd as it might sound, I wanted to live in a barn since I was about 10. I thought it just might be the coolest thing ever. I wanted to take a small farmhouse and attach it to the side of a barn…yep. Every now and then when I see a neat barn I still dabble with the idea.

    I totally want to live in that barn as well. The way the master bedroom is framed but the pointed roof of the barn? That is so cute!

  • I haven’t viewed photos yet…. this is so weird. I’ve always wanted to reno a barn a turn it into this amazing living/kitchen space. I’m going back to view the shots. Oh well nice to think alike sometimes.

      Worth it. I’d really like to track the place down, since it’s not that far away from Neil’s parents house. Would that be stalker-ish?
