    Default A family of four, a 700-square-foot barn, and a bowling lane table


    ( Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times ) By Barbara Thornburg

    Where many see junk, Corey Gash envisions design possibilities. The window display artist convinced his family to leave its comfortable, two-bedroom town house in Orange last year for a run-down barn in Costa Mesa that once housed chickens and, later, a boat-building operation.
    "The first time I saw it, I thought it was an amazing space with great bones. I'd always wanted to live in a barn," says Gash, who has fond childhood memories of feeding the chickens during summer vacations at his aunt's farm in Colorado. Partner Krista Wallace wasn't quite as enthusiastic. "At first I thought, 'No way. I couldn't live there,' " she says. "The place was a shambles -- filled with old wood and spiders. There wasn't a bathroom -- just an outdoor shower -- and I had just found out that I was pregnant."
    Now, repurposed materials and furnishings give the remodeled 700-square-foot home a loft-like openness and a soulful style.

    The stairs aren't that scary. Sofa inches from the fireplace is a bit of a fire hazard though. Hate the kitchen cupboards. HAAAATE. Cannot stand barnboard indoors. The piles of books under the stairs is just retarded. They'll get covered in dust/dirt/pet hair/etc in no time.

    No thanks. I probably could spend one night there, tops and I would go nuts.

    It's ok. I don't like all the books piled up though. It just looks messy and cluttered that way.

    I like it. Very boho. Absolutely adore the outdoor shower - one of life's truly awesome pleasures.
