Located on a scenic property in Sandy, Oregon, this custom timber frame apartment barn was designed around the clients’ lifestyle needs. The ground floor doubles as a storage and work space, with large 12′ x 14′ swinging garage doors to accommodate the RV it stores. Upstairs, a sweeping living area with tall ceilings and optimal natural lighting make for a comfortable space to kick back and relax.
This custom apartment barn features a number of finishes that were sourced from local artisans. A log spiral staircase with rod iron handrails takes you to the upstairs loft, where there are french doors leading to a large covered deck and a wet bar. Two Nantucket shed dormers and a custom cupola add to the building’s rustic appearance, while copper wainscoting on the exterior accentuates the fine cedar batten and board siding.
