Mixing salvaged materials with sustainable components, Ben's Barn brings the past into the present to reimagine the New England farmhouse. The current property was formerly occupied by an old 19th-century house and a barn. Its granite foundation now lines the exterior landscaping while new Maine cedar planks and a steel roof form the facade. On the inside, original timber roofing and wood cladding were repurposed for the new construction along with cabinetry and fixtures from a nearby mid-century modern teardown. Its exposed framework is a combination of reclaimed and new timbers. Raw steel beams and polished concrete floors offer an industrial counterpoint to the otherwise rustic aesthetic.
