The modern car barn design includes an oversized, energy-efficient trapezoid window in the upstairs living quarters. “You can see the sky, the trees, and the lawn area from the lounge and kitchenette,” Wadsworth said, noting that as the seasons change, the light changes in the home. “Being Vermont, we want everything to be as energy efficient as possible. We want to keep in the warmth in the winter, and in the summer months we need options for cooling and ventilation. Marvin’s array of collections offers all of that wonderful flexibility.”
Wadsworth said this project has received an incredibly positive response and has been a source of inspiration for other clients. “People are looking for smaller-scale homes that can still feel spacious, and what makes this car barn feel so large despite its minimal footprint is the use of windows.” He believes this project clearly shows the homeowners are actively enjoying their environment. “It is all about embracing that Vermont lifestyle dream.”
