Barn Door, Y'all!

Barn Doors are all the rage, aren't they... or are they? It seems like at this point, they are part and parcel of the modern American home renovation.  According to Realtor.com, this trend was on its way out in 2017, but alas, being one to buck the system, I opted to go ahead and add one to my home...even though we are well into 2018 and all! ;) To me, the point of trends is to be aware of them, and then decide for yourself, if this is something you like and want to commit to, long-term. So, on the barn door question, I committed whole-hearted y'all!

My reasoning for a barn door...we have a game room space upstairs that sits mid-way between a media room and a bedroom.

Two concerns:
1. Noise travels well in that area, and the occupant of said bedroom likes to come out of his room and hush his parents' TV watching habits. 2. During the inspection process, we lost a portion of drywall, sort of a hallway header in front of our attic access, due to a space/configuration goof.  Needless to say, I always felt that the hall needed "something..." that visually it was missing an element.  After mulling this over and over for quite a while, we finally took the plunge.  There are so many kits and DIY-How-Tos all over the internet, but we ultimately decided to hire a carpenter to create this for us.  We were NOT disappointed AT ALL.  It is truly a beautiful work of art...something that has made me fall even more in love with our upstairs now that it is a reality.  We hired Shannon & Joshua MacWilliams of Ingenious Wood by J-MAC.  They came highly recommended by many of our neighbors.  Why? Well, for starters, they can DO ANYTHING, and do it well, plus they are reasonably priced, and super-professional. Please see their Facebook page for a collection of the work they have done.  I am already thinking of the next project for Ingenious Wood by J-MAC!

Now on to the "eye candy"!!!

My furry shadow wanted to get in on the action, I suppose...
