I came across Megan Lea’s adorable backyard cabin while browsing Dwell.com. I love the shades of wood on the exterior of the building and the interior looks warm and cozy, too. Lea’s cabin was built from reclaimed wood through Barnwood Naturals, LLC, a company dedicated to building and installing home installations using 100% reclaimed wood from old barns and buildings. The coloring of the wood is natural, I believe, because it came from various barn finds. It definitely adds a unique facade to the building.
Her cabin is 11′ x 14′ and sits where her now-defunct vegetable patch used to be. It’s a quaint addition to a backyard corner.
Of course, reclaimed materials can also be used for interior projects, like wall treatments, stairways, or counter tops and islands. Just check out these ideas from Barnwood Naturals:
