VIA| For those Americans who are fortunate enough to have a barn on their premises, this story can serve as a source of inspiration.
When the Meek family, purchased a fixer-upper with a barn in need of serious renovation, they weren’t certain what to do with it. After much deliberation, they decided to change it completely. But they didn’t just want to restore it to its former glory, the Meek family transformed it into a beautiful home anyone would be happy to live in.
When they first bought the house, the Meeks were dumfounded by the deteriorating barn. The previous owner had already converted it into a garage. But that just didn’t feel right for this family.
In order to get the best out of their “new” barn, the Meeks presented Chip and Joanna Gaines with a wish list.
The couple jumped at the chance to create a beautiful space that included not only a large gathering room for entertaining with abundant natural light, but an overarching modern farm design throughout the barn.
But the Gaines over-delivered on their promise. As you’ll see in the images here, they created something that made the Meeks’ jaws drop.
The old garage was transformed into an amazing sitting room. The rustic hardwood floor matches the color scheme of the brown leather couches perfectly. And the natural light is to die for. Wouldn’t you agree?
But despite the modern renovation, they kept the farm-house touch. The barn doors were left in and serve as the perfect divider to remind house guests of the home’s history.
And of course, the kids love their new barn! There’s a LEGO wall that the young Josh Meeks can use to his heart’s content.
The old hallway was transformed into an amazing dining area. It’s equipped with a 17-foot wood table that appeals to the rustic taste of the barn.
What’s your impression of this amazing home renovation?
