Slide 1: Remodeled Bank Barn


This vintage, German-style bank barn in Ohio had fallen into disrepair before it was carefully stabilized and moved to a new location for remodeling. (Bank barns are built into hillsides and offer ground access to both levels.) The converted barn, designed by Blackburn Architects, based in Washington, D.C., now features two bedrooms, two loft-style day rooms, a large kitchen, dining room, and family room.
