Modern Vermont Barn

Vermont Architect is a blog I check up on every now and again.  It is the professional and sometimes personal blog of Vermont architect Robert Swinburne.  He has been working on a personal project for sometime…a barn located on his property.  There are few pictures of before, but the progress photo is pretty impressive:

Swinburne Barn

The materials are appropriate to that of a typical barn but are expressed in a modern way.  I love how the siding breaks up on the main level to allow some light in/out.  Someday, when we get some open land out in the middle of nowhere, I hope to have the chance to create a little getaway not to dissimilar from this.



  1. yo and hey, just found my barn here. glad you like it. There are no before shots because in 2005 this was just woods. I built from scratch. there is a bit of video of the inside. here:
