A couple of former musicians turned game developers built their dream house – a modern barn on the family farm that suits their lifestyle perfectly.
With four kids, Sasha and Josh Presseisen lead a busy life. Whether running from a gymnastic meet or school, everyday is filled with activity, so naturally they wanted to build a cool house to complement their fun family lifestyle. When they finally got the chance to create the home of their dreams, they opted for a barn-style space, with an open floor plan and a loft.
Rather than filling their barn with country chic pieces, the Presseisens decided to make an unconventional move and embrace a modern design esthetic. The result is the perfect juxtaposition of a modern look within a barn-esque layout. Their color scheme is bright, homey, and fun, with splashes of yellows, reds and teals against a neutral wood foundation.
Their large windows fill the home with light, so even in the middle of a New York winter, the barn is brimming with sunlight and warmth. “I never take it for granted (that) we built this. This is our design.” Sasha beams with pride. And indeed, the Presseisen’s modern barn is definitely a home of which to be proud.
