A house within another, bigger house, this design is located on 3 acres of property in Kalkin’s home state of New Jersey. The outer shell is a modern, industrial shed with unusual shaped, custom roll-up doors and 3 stories of rooms on one end. The inner home is a traditional two-story New Jersey home, white-washed and pristine, sitting on display almost as if it were being preserved in a museum.
When the industrial doors are rolled up, the space opens to the outdoors and the cozy living room gets a fresh breeze. The traditional inner home, with its old-school porch make you want to sit and drink tea and lemonade all afternoon. Inside the little two-story house, the furnishings take you back in time, with their antique frames and charming warm colors. At the other end of the shed, three stories of rooms have been built in with modern fixtures, metal staircases and lots of windows. (to find out more..)
