The British Barn created by Carl Turner, located in Dwell, England is a modern barn suitable for anyone wishing to spend a pleasant weekend. With the perfect contrast of country and chic, I’d say anyone who stayed here would feel very balanced. The entire interior is done with strand board which is made from tree chippings and is extremely environmentally friendly.

Strand board is normally only found in barns and unfinished rooms so the use of it, on purpose, is quite unique and looks much better than expected. With the sleek, modern furniture and flooring, the home does not lack luxury in any way. It’s simple and ironic design is, in fact, very British. Their subtle humor is known and admired by all and it definitely makes this modern barn an ideal place for travelers and tourists alike to stay.
