This sliding barn door is the perfect addition for a rustic design. The distressed look gives it a very natural feel while the sliding mechanism makes it easy and functional. Yellow walls brighten the space and a marble floor adds a polished finish.
Situated in a natural clearing of a large grove of aspen trees, this Wyoming home's landscape design makes the most of its wetlands and natural water courses. A breezeway connects the front drive, barn and main house.
The transformation of this rustic barn into a music/entertainment space provides a place for family and guests to gather. The lounge features comfortable sofas, occasional seating and a massive stone fireplace that inspires listeners to relax with a cool beverage that is easily ordered from the adjacent bar.
The pattern of the stone on the car barn's exterior closely resembles a building on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt estate. The Springwood estate, located in Hyde Park, N.Y., served as inspiration for this structure. Many mockups were erected and knocked down before finding the perfect blend of four different stones.
The carriage house, designed to store and display an impressive car collection, is nestled among the trees. The structure, resembling an old barn, relates to its surroundings and provides an area for running the cars' motors outdoors and includes space for outdoor display.
To save space, install a sliding barn door. Although McNeal Walker Interiors had to purchase the sliding door system, the door was a freebie, found on the side of the road in Atlanta and repurposed for a rustic, space-saving entry to this guest bathroom.
