Barn Style Kitchen and Dining Room

I recently toured a fabulous early 19th century house with a very small dining room. Instead of putting an addition on the house, the homeowners built a barn structure with an upstairs sleeping loft instead. Here's the country kitchen view. The middle of the room is the family room for TV viewing as you will see in the next photo.

The farm table with benches makes this the perfect space for entertaining large gatherings or for housing visiting guests. It is a great no-frills space that probably wasn't that expensive to construct. I think it's an Amish-built structure. There was no agonizing about paint colors either. Pine paneling and natural wood prevailed.

Put a laundry area in a corner and I could live in that room. Lovely as can be. Maybe they should build houses with fewer walls.

Jane -- I am pretty sure I saw a laundry room/mudroom, a workshop, and a full bath in the area you cannot see behind the TV. When do you want to move in?

Rosemary, sometimes I wonder if you work in real estate so that you can get into so many amazing and beautiful homes just to take photos and share them with us....hahahaha. I know that is not the case but lucky us to be able to benefit so nicely from your profession and exceptional eye for the visual and interesting.
