    Its 25 below zero today so I’m spending my time looking at everything Kelly is posting. I’ve been in a couple of barn conversions and this one could be a fun project for the new owner to add their own touch. I’m sure I would pass on boarding horses in my home however.

      I have horses, so I’m completely okay with this home! It’s a twofer! Wish I had the money to go now!

    I love this conversion, but not sure I’d want to share my living space with my horses! See the tobacco field in photo 18. I bet this area of North Carolina is dotted with tobacco barns. I love old tobacco barns, which appear dilapidated, but they only have to serve the purpose of keeping the rain out and the circulating air in. Here’s a picture:

      That’s not a tobacco barn.

        I know this one isn’t – I’m just saying the tobacco fields remind me of the tobacco barns near me. Let’s agree on this: smoking is bad for you.

          Smoking is terrible for you but I didn’t realize that was a tobacco field next door. Have y’all been around tobacco fields, they smell amazing!

    Wow! Looking at those tobacco barns took me back to 6 years old and traveling with my family from Florida across the entire state of Georgia to go to grandparents house in Knoxville, Tenn! I love this barn idea. Great for huge Thanksgiving feast!

    The original barndominium! Nice although slightly generic upstairs could be given lots of character. I just keep thinking that the house would always smell like a stable. It’s a smell that tends to permeate.

    I had a friend who had an apartment above a barn & as a kid I always thought it would be the ultimate way to live since I spent most of my life at our barn anyway. But after house sitting & visiting her in her barn apartment I changed my mind. She was always complaining about the dust & not being able to open the windows because of it plus the smell & the noise from the horses. After house sitting for her on many occasions, I understood what she meant. This is an awesome barn, but I would want my house located elsewhere.

    For years we lived in a tiny farmhouse built in 1890, and our neighbors lived in the dairy barn that was original to the property. Their barn conversion (7500 hundred square feet!) utilized a lot of old barn wood in the built ins/stairs etc., and despite being converted in the late 60’s, the interior does not look dated at all. Half of the upstairs was an open great room that went right up to the exposed beams on the gabled roof. That barn had such a unique old wood smell inside even 60+ years after the conversion, which makes me agree that living over a stable would indeed be pungent. These photos make it really hard to get a feel for how the interior flows, but I wish it wasn’t so IKEA-like. Too much light wood.
    Kelly- I love this site! Thanks for giving me my daily old house fix.

    I’ve always loved converted barns; Ken Burns considers them a form of rural cathedral. The photos suggest a soaring space reminiscent of European basilicas, the steep gambrel roof so very like the barrel vaults Catholicism embraced. I would have liked to have seen more photos of the transition between the finished space and the unfinished space.

    I have never been lucky enough to own horses, however whenever possible I visit with them. To me the smell of horses is pure joy! I know I’m strange. But I would so live here in a heartbeat with my beloved and well thought out menagerie of animals. It would be a dream come true!

      Strange isn’t a bad thing, very much contrary to what you may have been told

      different strokes 4 different folks and etc etc

      embrace the strange and have fun doing it, just be certain not to byte off more then you can chew 🙂
