This Tiny House is a “Barn House”

Barns September 2, 2016

This multifunctional barn / outbuilding is located on an old farmstead. The yard and the farm in the course of time have become to a large extent swallowed up by the city, but here rustic and new have been combined in a tiny house dwelling.

“City Barn” is a rural modern house inside the city, and it has just a small yard at the rear. The slight angular displacement of the volume responds to the movement in the yard. It also represents a new center of gravity in front of the entrance of the existing farmhouse.

The barn has room for a workshop, storage room, parking, and terrace. The volumes are encased and connected by means of a folded sinking shell. The shell opens on the side of the main entrance of the house and the green area of the yard. The north side of the barn has a more closed character with regards to the backside street.

For more work by the designer Onix, find them in our prefab house, modular home, tiny house, and modern architecture directory.

Home Built From An Old Barn

Barns May 25, 2016

Home Built From An Old Barn

Take a look at this barn built before the civil war, repurposed as a house in the Catskills. A small house, but set in nature, and they have a raspberry patch. It’s a couple who live there. I guess they wanted to get away from the business of the city. What is your ideal house and location, though? Is it a repurposed old relic like this one out in the countryside, or a prefab house on a lake? or something in the city?

For those of you interested in something like this repurposed barn, it was part of a bigger property purchase for Fabio Chizola, a fashion photographer and his wife, also in the fashion business.

The property is a Datch-American stone farmhouse and it has several barns. The one in the photo above is one of these barns. The property is actually a 32-acre apple orchard.

The siding isn’t original. It was replaced with mushroom wood.

The couple said they liked the property in part because it reminded them of Italy. Both the couple are from Europe.

A couple notable features: that long plank table in the photo: its a custom-made single-slab oak board table, which came from Woodstock, New York.

That stone work on the walls is original.

The house cost the couple $385,000 in 2002, and they did some home renovations on the new property for about 5K more.

This picture showing lots of the house’s features is probably best viewed on a desktop computer, or tilt your phone sideways. The photography was done by Randy Harris for The New York Times.
