"Never judge a book by its cover."
This abandoned stable just proved the saying. What looked like an abandoned building from outside turned out to be a beautiful, luxurious home from the inside. Carlos and his sister Camino wanted a hidden getaway home among nature away from the hustle and bustle of a city.
That's when they discovered this old building that was once used as a shelter for cattle. The building was in ruins and falling apart, but the siblings saw the real value of the old building and made something amazing out of it.
They are partners at an architectural firm, Abaton, in Madrid. They were searching for a secluded country home for their extended family. That's when they stumbled upon an abandoned cow stable in rural Extremadura, Spain.
Carlos and Camino worked the streams into the design of the house.
They did not make a change in the house structure but added cement to the crumbling walls. They wanted to keep the ranch feeling of the house.
During winter the sunlight pouring in is enough to keep them warm. There is no need to light the fireplace.
The shutters protect the house form rain, wind, snow storms and close in the heat.
They have solar pannels for when there is sun and turbines for the winter when there is no sunlight.
To give a feeling a warm, cozy place they have put several bunk beds making it children dream place.
Who wouldn't want to wake up to such a beautiful view? The house is everything one can dream of. It has a peaceful aura around it and is fully in tune with nature. It has all the modern facilities and still has an old vibe to it.
