Barnwood | From the Farmyard to the Clubhouse

Did you know that the ceiling in our Prairie Pointe clubhouse lounge is made of wood from a 100-year-old barn?!  Construction is coming along at Prairie Pointe and the barnwood ceiling has been installed.  But let's start back at the wood's beginnings and have a look at the original barn:

This rustic, red beauty once stood out in the middle of Iowan farmland.  

After deconstructing the old barn, the wood was cleaned and cut down to correctly sized planks.

And up they go!  The barnwood adds rustic texture and rich color overhead in our clubhouse lounge.

A medley of colors and textures come together in the clubhouse: sleek and modern white surfaces, natural stone on the fireplace, rustic barnwood on the ceiling, and smooth, warm gray on some of the walls.  

The aged barnwood contrasts nicely with modern, industrial light fixtures.  

We used an old wooden floor beam from the barn as a fireplace mantle...

 ...and some floor beams as a counter top, too.

We love an old Iowa barn being brought back to life in our modern, rustic, industrial clubhouse! 
What do you think?
