I scouted this barn renovation with the builder to plan for the shoot and I immediately felt at home. We entered through the garage, into the mudroom, up the stairs and then into an open main living space. The combination of the polished concrete flooring with the antique floors had a warm and contemporary feel. When I saw the main floor with the original timberframe contrasted with modern steel stairs and cable railings, I could see right away many great angles for photographs! The walls were reclaimed wood with salvage doors and dry wall next to new energy efficient windows. I shot the home a few weeks later and they are some of my favorite images taken this year.
