The Hearth

Category: Barn Conversion Journal February 19th, 2009 by mbc

MyBarnConversion.com is not the natural place for philosophical discourse but the building of the hearth in the barn has changed the way I view the building. It seems that the central position of the hearth against the gable end wall and within the building, its associations with fire and the power that has on the human psyche all contrive to make the new hearth a catalyst in starting to view this as a house or even a home rather than merely a barn that is being converted into something else

From MyBarnConversion 2009

The hearth transforms the barn from a building to a house, hopefully once the stove is in and a fire is burning in it that house will become a home. We’ll see…

Philosophical interlude over…

Attention to detail…
So, as we have started work, we need to think about all those details that I’ve put to one side until we had a builder.

My Favourite Things ~ ‘Rounded Corner’
One corner of the barn has been carefully rounded, it speaks to me of workmanship, care and simple good design (don’t worry I’m not literally hearing walls speak).
