Effective Reuse

Despite its folksy Americana appeal, the insulation value of old barn wood is about zero. The architect's solution: Use the recycled barn wood on the interior walls to add quirkiness, warmth and historic charm to the living spaces, and sheathe the home's exterior in new wood to keep out the cold and create a more unified, planned look.
