Often times one barn is not big enough to contain all that the owners want to include in the house, and this home is a great example of joining two distinct barns to form one residence. The front barn is an English-framed barn from about 1830 and the back barn, which includes the kitchen and great room, is a Dutch Barn from the late 1700’s. Both barns were originally built in New York. The craftsmanship is exquisite in this project located outside of New York City. The architect added a clerestory of windows along the ridge of the Dutch barn to let a cascade of light down into the interior, which also features a Texas limestone chimney climbing up to the ridge. The kitchen cabinetry is a combination of different designs and colors and the antique siding on the exterior melds both barns into one.
