The Barn House

I have been doing some design work for a client who wants a barn style house. In the process I have been looking at various images and have become increasingly impressed by the possibilities of this simple form. The straightforward lines a home of this style requires lead one to explore siding and window placements that are anything but boring. Below are some images I particularly enjoy.



Looking at all these cool homes, I said to Jence "What about using a vertical siding on the exterior of our house?" He just about fell off the ladder he was standing on and gave me a skeptical look. Our current plan is to use a wide exposure rough pine clapboard, and I imagine we will stick with that plan.
