Barn Entry

27 February 2010
I love this house because it has romance and charm, part of the shingle style tradition.  We even added an ‘eyebrow’ to the front wall with a series of owl boxes above it, although I’ve never seen a bird go in there.  We also added a French (Juliet) balcony and French doors to the master bedroom above.
 
 
 
Front Entry

The original rotted barn doors were removed and replaced with a window wall to bring light into the space.  The glass is set back to allow room for protection from the weather upon entry, and is also set at an angle to make room for the front door shown to the left.

Here is a detail above the main entry.  The original wood beams were exposed to the weather so they were capped with copper.  This particular one has the house number stenciled on.

The exterior trim and siding is painted dark green to help the building blend in a bit more with the surrounding woods.
