A barn re-born

Job Site by: Architect - Mark McConnell , Contractor - Paul Kapitula

Home remodel gives new life to an Anderson barn


A new entrance, larger windows and barn red accents go a long way in adding a serious amount of life to what was once an old barn.

The linear gas fireplace highlights a favorite piece of artwork which hangs above, but doesn’t steal the show from the main attraction in the room, the magnificent view.

A yoga, meditation loft space is reachable via a custom-designed spiral staircase. Copper beehive domed lights in the kitchen add a touch of contrast to the stainless steel appliances and steel cable railing.

The homeowner is a serious fan of the induction cooktop and telescoping downdraft exhaust fan in the kitchen island because of the precise temperature control and “unbelievably easy clean up.”

A well-stocked wine cellar stands just feet away from the dining space providing Jerry, a wine enthusiast, the perfect place to showcase his finds.



The cupola now has windows that open remotely to take advantage of the chimney effect, using the central stairwell and concrete floors to cool in the summer.

On the first level, radiant heat in the polished concrete floor keeps the first floor cozy and comfortable which is especially nice in the bathroom.

A craftsman at 1st Design created the cable railings of this staircase with the exact modern simplicity and open feel that the homeowners wanted.



During their home remodel, this homeowner drove to Kansas City to pick up this Chocolate walnut slab from an artisan woodworker that his wife found on Etsy.

A guest bedroom, with an enchanting view of the meadow, was originally just blue tape lines on the hayloft floor.

This chiseled wood sculpture was created by the homeowner's grandmother and serves as a striking piece of home decor.
