Art Barn

Condo Remodel • 2 Bed, 2 Bath • 4,819 SF

Embracing the notion of commissioning artists and hiring a General Contractor in a single stroke, the new owners of this Grove Park condo hired WSM Craft to create a space to showcase their collection of contemporary folk art. The entire home is trimmed in repurposed wood from the WNC Livestock Market, which continues to become headboards, custom cabinetry, mosaic wall installations, and the mantle for the massive stone fireplace. The sliding barn door is outfitted with hand forged ironwork, and faux finish painting adorns walls, doors, and cabinetry and furnishings, creating a seamless unity between the built space and the décor.

Client Testimonial

We purchased a very dated but spacious condo in Asheville, NC last year. We knew we wanted to totally update the very 1980’s space. Rustic contemporary was the style we were after but knew we needed someone to share our vision. We got very lucky! Into our lives entered Smith McAulay. He knew immediately what we wanted. He had us out picking through repurposed barn wood for floor and ceiling trim. Soon we had a bedroom enclosure with a shelf for books and art display. Built in storage in the bedroom and master bath soon followed. And so the process has evolved. Lots of other wonderful touches were added including a sliding barnwood door and a simple but perfect mantel. Couldn’t have asked for more! Our experience was very enjoyable and would do it all again. Pretty lucky, huh!!
