While cruising through the farmlands of Wyoming, you’ll likely observe barns that look good from a country mile away, but are actually far from good up close thanks to years of wear and tear.
The 2,400-square-foot project in Wilson, Wyoming by the Carney Logan Burk Architects is not one of those barns.
Constructed with help from WRJ Interior Design, The Barn was built on a 15-acre ranch to serve as a guest house, workout space and classic car garage replete with mountain views.

By combining classic 19th century touches like reclaimed Montana barnwood walls, a pitched ceiling and a cedar roof with modern features like a north-facing glass wall on the top floor, two lower windows that open to let in fresh air and top-of-the-line furnishings, The Barn blends rustic and contemporary into a package no human — or cow — will be able to resist.
“[Because the barn shape] is very classic and traditional, we knew we wanted to add an element of surprise in the design,” architect John Carney told Big Life Magazine.
Surprises? Yeah. There are a few. Just keep your eyes on the road, pal.
