barn conversion
A barn was initially designed for this hillside property. It was intended to house a garage and workshop with a caretaker's apartment on the second level that would serve as a temporary residence for the owner while the main house was under construction. But the finished barn sat so comfortably on the site that a decision was made to convert it into the main house by finishing the lower level garage space and adding a small addition containing an entrance area and screened porch with a master bedroom wing above..
