Big Barn in Narrowsburg - Done (phase 1)

The Big Big Barn in Narrowsburg is just finishing up Phase 1, the house and barn project.  With 17 acres and a lake, I expect Phase 2 to center around the grounds.

That's the house up above and the garage down below.

It took us about a year to put these babies up and considering everything that went into them, that's pretty speedy.

The 4 door garage with space upstairs turned out real nice.

Lots of deck, some covered, some screened, some elevated.

With 17 acres there was a lot of different places to put the house.

Here's the mudroom, with a bench, a roof panel backsplash, double closet, local stone, natural ceiling.


The hole house is about openness and light.  We used 3 residential garage doors that operate real smooth as the defining house accent.

Lots of stone on the inside and the outside.

This is a shot of the master bedroom, which is open to the rest of the house.

Stainless steel hanging orb..

And a swanky shower.  We used 3x6 subway tile with black grout in all 6 bathrooms.

From the bath, the barn.

Drawers from the vanity out cause we just did templated a concrete countertop, which turned out really good.

Here's the upstairs of the garage.

And a frontal on the garage doors.

Floor to ceiling subway tile.

And a phone pull string toilet.

2 good bedrooms on the first floor, each with a bath.

And a kitchen that sprawls in a few directions.

We went back and forth on the garage design  - glad we ended up where we did.

Master Bath toilet.

Exposed spiral ductwork.

Going down in the basement...

With polished concrete floors, a pool, wine room and media room.

In a way, it's harder to build a small home than a large one.  But we had a lot of fun here and really turned out an architecturally unique and modest homestead to be enjoyed for years to come, I'm sure.
