It’s still a work in progress but we got a lot done in the tack room in the barn this week! 🐎 We have never had a tack room before. 🎉 The saddles and everything else have been spread between trailers and an area in the house. We are so excited for it to all be in one place. I even got to get the horse treat jar and all the medicines off my kitchen counter 🙌🏼 I found ideas for saddle racks on Pinterest then we modified them to fit what we needed. The boys built the wood part. Scott did all the welding. They turned out better than I pictured 😍 Thinking I want to stain the concrete floor 🤔 ...I have a few things left I want to do to it 😉
So here it is - the blue bedroom I’ve had in my head for several years, finally turned into reality 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 It’s a guest bedroom but I love it so much I may have to move myself in there!
It’s full of second hand stuff and hand-me-downs, which for me is much of the charm.
The bed from eBay, about £26 if I remember rightly, stripped of its chipped paint by my mum and I, then painted in a dark grey. The pretty desk (look at its curves!) was a Christmas present and there’s a bit of a story to it (maybe another time 😉). The little Arts and Crafts-y chair is a refugee from my parents’ home, and very welcome in mine 😊
Knicks knacks gathered, squirrel-like, over the years from junk shops, jumble sales and car-boots, vide greniers and trocs or given to me as mementoes of special people and now finally finding a home on the chest of drawers and in this little #knickknacktheatre created by my husband when he built the wall and ran out of blocks to build it with! It’s now had a frame added, glass shelves and a hidden light above and I am chuffed with how lovely it is 🙌🏻 (I have to admit, for a long time I was not overly positive about the whole idea of this nook in the wall but I am, right here and right now, bowing down to my husband’s genius in solving his desire not to drive an hour for an extra couple of blocks in this way!) I have a couple of nice pictures to put up, need to dress the window in some way and find a lamp for beside the bed but other that those things, this is a finish!

A stable conversion into a playroom in North Essex. Just part of a larger project.
One from yesteryear hence the quality of the photos.
This barn of significant historical importance needed considerable renovations for conversion to a habitable dwelling. Works included structural and strengthening repairs, alterations to the existing timber frame and thatching.
Курс на простоту и экологичность, стиль #barnhouse подходит для этой цели как нельзя лучше.
Кажущаяся скромность фасадов скрывает за собой вместительный просторный дом с четырьмя спальнями, гостиной и кухней-столовой.
Сдержанная архитектура смотрится легко и изящно, отделка фасада решена в светлых тонах. Со стороны заднего двора предусмотрена уютная терраса и балкон.
Кухня-столовая объединена с гостиной и создает общую зону, для времяпрепровождения всей семьи. Так же на первом этаже расположены техническое помещение, гостевой сан.узел с душевой кабиной и кабинет, трансформирующийся в гостевую комнату.
Второй этаж целиком отведен под приватную зону - три спальни, большая ванной комната и кладовка площадью 6,5 кв. м.
📌 Площадь: 128 кв. м
📌 Материал стен: газобетон
📌 Внешние размеры: 8,7 м x 9,9 м

Exterior wall is finished, interior wall built, run in shelter mucked out, and stall matts are in 🙌🏻 got a lot more projects to do but it feels good to get more and more things checked off my barn to do list! #workinprogress#barnproject
I am starting to plan out my first barn build on our new property. Found a set of plans and plan to mill the lumber from trees that were cleared when we built our house. I don’t want to go crazy with it so starting with a 14’ x 24’. Who of you out there have ever built a barn from their own milled lumber? #georgiabushcraft#barnproject#homestead#selfreliance#sawmill#barn
Many of you know that Jason has an intense work ethic and a gift for making seemingly insane projects happen in record time. Here’s his latest project!
He found this barn on Craigslist four hours away (near Trimont where I grew up) and all the stars aligned for it to be ours... as long as he pitched all the hay out and took it down piece by piece and figured out how to move it to our farm.
After four days he and one friend have succeeded in getting all the siding off and hay pitched out. Along the way he met a granddaughter of the original owner of the farm (who happened to be visiting from California) who shared that the barn was built in 1880 and moved to the current site on a new brick foundation in the 40s. It’s in amazing condition. Upon getting enough hay out to finally see the floor boards, it turns out they are likely redwood!
He also met an 83 year old neighbor who has taken down and reassembled over 40 barns, grainaries, sheds, and coops, and has the heavy equipment for the bigger tasks ahead of getting down the roof and framing, and offered to help!
We haven’t fully fleshed out what we’ll use the barn for, but Jason is in love with it and says it feels like church inside. These barns are being bulldozed at record pace these days as fewer and fewer small farms keep livestock and can justify the cost of maintaining them. The wood alone is worth preserving, but to pull off keeping this barn in its original state feels like an honoring of the many hands that made it and the mouths it fed.
More photos of the barn and their progress in stories and highlights!
