An 18th century barn becomes a not-so-typical ski chalet in Colorado

If you’re looking for a house with good bones for a Colorado ski chalet, an 18th-century barn in upstate New York might seem like a crazy, if not impossible idea. Yet this house proves that not only is it possible, it can be beautiful too. Restored by Heritage Barns, the barn frame was transported to Telluride, Colorado, where the interiors were completed renovated to suit the needs of its new homeowners. With a spacious dining area, multiple bedrooms and a cozy living room, the chalet is the perfect place to relax after a long day of hitting the slopes. Meanwhile, the antique floors and exposed beams are a constant reminder to the barn’s storied past in New York.
