Meticulously restored for comfortable functionality.
Inspired by an enthusiasm for historic outbuildings and barns
found in mountain regions in the U.S. and Europe, converting
this rustic barn into a masculine enclave seemed like the
perfect fit. The design called for a classic study and hunting
shop that appealed to the homeowner’s love for history as
well as the outdoors.
A rusted steel roof over a reclaimed and battered stone
exterior gives way to an inviting interior comprised of
reclaimed barn boards and timbers with large pieces of Loon
Lake flagstone for flooring. A desk alcove in the study is
surrounded by large double hung windows and warmed by a
large stone fireplace.
The hunting shop includes a track-mounted ceiling hoist for
raising deer out of the back of a pickup, an ammo loading
workbench, washer and dryer for hunting clothes and a
Marvin wood windows were an easy choice because of the
availability of fir to help maintain the authenticity of the
exterior. This, along with the sash detailing and the ability to
customize without complications, made Marvin the perfect fit
for the project.
