Country Cabin Front Entry With Blue Front Door & Blue Barn Shutters
A rock bed surrounds the front entry of this country cabin home. Natural rock walls combine with polished wood for a beautiful contrast. A blue front door, blue barn shutters and a blue painted overhang add color to the natural palette. A glimpse of the red siding peeks through for an additional color accent.
This relaxed home was created for Tim Brown and his family. A large focus was placed on making the home as energy efficient as it is aesthetically pleasing. The placement on the site was key in keeping it a low-energy-using home. With lots of cross ventilation and clerestory windows to vent heat, the home's energy bills are half the amount of a typical home in this area. A rainwater collection system was also incorporated to catch 100 percent of the home's potable water.
Modern Southwestern Home With Red Brick and Stucco Exterior
This Southwestern home exterior earns a modern spin with its pairing of classic white stucco with red brick. Concrete slabs lead the way to the front porch, while neutral gravel provides ground cover. Yellow metal chairs provide a pop of color.
Exterior of Gorgeous Red Party Barn With Open Yard
An open yard with small planted trees and shrubs allows this beautiful red party barn to shine in the evening light. Mulched areas create fluid lines from the house perimeter into the yard. Landscape lighting dotted around the property creates a twinkly look.
Built as a caretaker's cottage on a Connecticut horse farm, this home now serves as a guest cottage, Airbnb rental and a private retreat for the property owner. Rust red exterior paint gives the house a subdued touch of color for an updated take on traditional barn red.
This home has all the charming looks of a barn and measures in at 1,870 square feet. All the main living areas are located on the first floor in an open plan layout. The little bump-out houses the mudroom, laundry room, storage and a powder room.
The actual containers used in this home are concealed behind the duplex, and mirror each other, just as the duplex units mirror each other with two bedrooms and three bathrooms. Similarly to designer Patrice Rios’ own container, these function as either an office or guesthouse. Neither contains a bathroom, but there’s easy access to one on the first floor of each unit. Rios is currently designing another duplex in the city that will incorporate shipping containers inside the home.
