To the 7 barn house!!

Isn’t it beautiful? If you’re interested in staying at this house located on the south shore of Lake Superior, you can! It’s available for rent here!! (affiliate) It sleeps 20 and is an amazing setting.

This is a huge house, (that you can rent by the week) located on the South shore of Lake Superior. It is constructed of repurposed wood from 7 different barns.

Inside the house, there are pictures of each of the 7 barns when they were still standing.

We were so fortunate and thrilled to be invited up to stay with some very dear family friends that were staying at this house for the week.

Here is a close up I took of the back of the house, you can clearly see the different sidings from the original structures, and how they repurposed them for this house.

But the antique wood is not only visible on the outside…

Once you step foot inside this magnificent space, it’s clear to see the amount of antique wood and beams used throughout the house.

The creativity with the light fixtures was very intriguing too.

And here you can see the industrial creation that hangs over the huge island in the kitchen.

And the dining room fixture created from a barn beam and antique pulleys.
