You can see the part of the home that was once a barn. RTM Architects retained the character and age of the barn giving this house real character.
The home boasts old lumber walls and wood support beams throughout. The furniture meshes nicely with the rustic architecture. Check out that rustic dining table. The red upholstery is a nice touch color-wise.
The red splashes carry on the kitchen with red cabinetry which I think looks great with all the natural wood. The kitchen features a red island that includes an L-shaped breakfast bar. Designed by RTM Architects
Check out that cathedral ceiling with old timber support beams in timber frame design.
It’s hard to get excited about a hallway in a house but the example here is truly exceptional. Again, the red color scheme continues with a red bench in the red runner.
The great room is the show-stopper in this rustic house. It’s a large two-story room with towering stone fireplace, concrete floors with wood beams (very cool) that looks up to a second story landing. What a fabulous room and house, all from an old barn.
I love landings in houses. Here’s a view of the great room from the second story landing.
Is it 1875? It could be looking at this covered deck with stone fireplace, aged wood beams and matching patio furniture.
The rustic style is just as prominent in the guest/kids rooms as the rest of the home. The red quilt matches nicely with the rustic vibe.
I like how one of the entrances preserved the old sliding barn doors, which are there for adornment. They look great.
The setting couldn’t be more perfect for this rustic house. From a distance, it still looks like an old barn but when you get inside, it’s truly an incredible transformation.
