If you take a ride along the roads through any countryside in any rural town in the United States, you’ll undoubtedly come across a broken-down barn which, at one point, likely stood tall and proud, but has since been neglected and forgotten. Most barns are subjected to this fate, but some are eyed for saving, like this Canyon Barn.

Set in the foothills of the eastern Cascades in Washington, this renovated barn has been impressively re-purposed into a three-bedroom house. The siding, paneling and flooring were all taken from the original barn or nearby structures that were set for demolition. Walls and doors were added to frame out the bedrooms, but the main room still remains with its original high, raw-beamed ceiling. The barn was designed in 2010 by MW Works Architecture+Design, who filled it with nods to its original purpose while still providing something new and livable.
