Thirty-five miles east of Columbus, in the Village of Granville, OH, sits a small, weathered, one-hundred-year-old barn. Sited in the backyard corner of a residential lot, the structure was utilized as a garage following it's retirement from agrarian use. With the steeples of Denison University as a backdrop, MINOH was asked to re-imagine the barn as a fully independent guest house.
While a majority of the exterior remains intact, the updated windows and polycarbonate stair enclosure are the most noticeable alterations. Inside, a completely re-framed structure supports original walls. Concrete floors and bleached pine casework provide a light template for the downstairs bath, kitchen and hosting spaces. Upstairs, ample sleeping quarters overlook the main house, along with Granville's Rockwellian tree-lined streets.
While some interior finish work remains, the barn is projected to be fully completed within the next month. Final photography to follow.
