Cedar and Glass

When the Griswold family bought a former farm on Whidbey Island, near Seattle, a ramshackle barn was part of the deal. The barn, built in the 1970s, didn't have much going for it beyond a graceful gambrel roof. But it was big enough to be a gathering place for friends and relatives.


The step-down dining area opens onto a new front patio.


A gently sloped ceiling softens the roofline's rustic angles. Siding was salvaged and now frames a set of glass panels and windows. Douglas fir floorboards and simple furnishings reinforce the pared-down look.


A guest loft overlooking the second floor has a wall of reclaimed cedar siding and a salvaged claw-foot tub set into a new surround.
