cool-grain-silo-home

Grain silos make exceptional living spaces if you like unconventional things. If you wish to have a cozy place for your own, but you don’t have a lot of money to invest, turning a grain silo into a house would be a great idea. These large containers are also a nice choice if you would like to live a more sustainable and eco-friendly life. The following grain silo has been turned into a beautiful home, although at a first glance the exterior reflects something else. The plain, metal structures hides a modern and welcoming interior, where space is divided in a unusual, but still ingenious way due to the cylindrical shape of the silo. The interior is characterized by the use natural colors and materials, such as wood and steel. With its 340 square feet this grain silo can the perfect living space for a young couple. This project is a true inspiration and a great example of modern architecture at an affordable price.

    Does anyone else notice that in the 7th picture down, its looks like she opened a closet and the pots and pans are fallig on her? Even though they are just hanging. :p

    Haha! That’s exactly what I thought. Mind you, I’m looking at this on my phone, and can only zoom in so much. It os a shame they don’t picture the bathroom. I’d have liked to have seen it.

    I absolutely love that design, but I really want to know the price tag for the whole project, inside and out (including the initial land + silo). So many small houses are being built by people who stay in the 4 and low 5 figures because they don’t have much to spend, and it wouldn’t surprise me if that cost over $200k. Since it falls in the “small house” category, I wouldn’t have described it as “modern architecture at an affordable price.”

    But I still love the design 😉

    Beautiful design except where’s the bathroom? I didn’t notice it in the blue prints either.
    The only 2 changes I would make is addition of a wood stove/fireplace for winter and some type of screen for the curved oosn door.
