7 Modern-designed homes out of barns

Architecture & Interiors

Our body might be in a room while we type this, but our mind is in a gorgeous country field somewhere, staring up at the clouds. Spring!!! If you lived in one of these  modern homes that were designed to look like a barn or renovated from an existing barn and had kids, someone might say to them, “Were you raised in a barn?!”  if they ever got unruly, and they’d have the distinct pleasure of  getting to say yes. Now, that’s shouldn’t be enough to warrant you wanting to live in a modern barn, but the gorgeous photos and styles of these seven homes certainly will be.

Bringing a certain warmth to modern architecture, the barn shape immediately evokes a pastoral sort of feel, imbuing modern lines with softness, innocence and a connection to the surrounding landscape that you just don’t always see in other types of modern design. Also it’s charming as F@$&. Here are seven stunning modern barn homes.
