I thought I’d share some new photos of my in-laws barn today. It’s slowly but surely coming together, and we’re hoping Jim and Katie can move in sometime later this Fall. Steevenson is shy around just about everyone he meets, but he loves his granmè (grandma) and asks if the workers are finished working on their kay (house) every day.
That’s their den/kitchen area in the photos above. The wood is just regular ol’ 1″x6″ pine boards, and I *think* the guys are planning to finish attaching them to the ceiling tomorrow and Monday, so hopefully I’ll have some more fun progress pics to share with you next week!
It is going to be such a beautiful cozy home! Many memories will be created there with Steeveson and his grandparents!
The exposed rafters are gorgeous! I can really visualize things now that the walls are filling in. This is so exciting!
It’s a beautiful small space and I love all the light that pours into the room with the dormer windows! It makes it feel large and open!!
I love it so far! I would love to live in something like that! I am a “granme”, too, and we don’t need as much space as we get up there in years!!

Going to be totally awesome! Love all the wood going in there. I bet Steevenson is fascinated with the workers. Maybe there’s a future architect in your midst! Or a general contractor maybe!
Thanks for the update!
How are you going to finish the wood? Maybe I missed when you talked about that! Paint, stain, etc. Would love to hear…and what the flooring plans are!
Are you all planning on staining the the pine planks or painting them?
They’ll be painted Simply White, Dianne! 🙂
Yum! Did they install drywall underneath the wood planks Layla, or did the planks go straight onto the studs?
Oh, they just went straight onto the studs. No drywall ($) necessary! 🙂
Do you worry about the knots showing thru the paint. We painted knotty pine cabinets last year and the knots started showing thru after about 6 months. We used primer, etc. but it only worked for a short time. Do you have a process you can share?
Looks so great!
I am anxious for this to be completed and I’m sure you are too! Looking awesome.

Looks fab and I am having so much fun watching it come together! (No where near as much as I bet y’all are!) Wondering about the insulation under the roof…is it spray foam and what made you choose that? I’m trying to convince my hubby that we need to update our insulation when we get our home re-roofed and looking at all the options. We have a neighbor who has this in their home (the previous owners did it) and their upstairs is always super cool, which for summers in Atlanta is awesome!
The builder chose that kind of insulation because it keeps things super cool…which for summers in Alabama is awesome too! 😀
Just did my backsplash the same way.. I love it. Hope it gets filled with love real soon.
IM LOVING IT!!!!!
what did you decide to do about the stairs going up to the “grandkids loft?” you mentioning on your v-log (which i loved btw) that the stairs would go on the opposite wall of the kitchenette heading towards the bedroom.
Cant wait to see more! oh and hey welcome home steevenson 😉

The stairs will still be there on that wall below the loft area. Excited to see how that all comes together! 🙂
Thanks for the updates. Love seeing the pictures and thanks for answering the questions asked!
Wow the barn interior is really taking shape! That’s sweet that Steevenson checks on the progress daily! What exciting times for all of you!
