    Default Former Slaughterhouse Becomes Dream Home

    FORMER SLAUGHTERHOUSE BECOMES DREAM HOME

    Can you believe that this beautiful home in Haarlem, The Netherlands, was once a pig slaughterhouse? Owners Marjan and Kasper saw the potential of the building and rebuilt it to a modern and light family home. The decor is a lovely mix of modern design, vintage and industrial.

    I'm more shocked that there is a city named Haarlem in the Netherlands.

    I'd slaughter myself if I lived there.

    The pictures suck. You can't really get a good look at the place. The connect-the-dots Girl with the Pearl Earring is ugly.

    It's the original one actually. The one in NYC now was an area originally settled by the Dutch I think...it was originally named Nieuw Haarlem, then the name became Anglicized.

    I've opened this thread several times and decided I like this house pretty well. If the structure might otherwise have been condemned, good for the owners that they remade it.

    I just always think it is cool that people can reuse a structure like this.

    I find it oddly mooving that they could turn a house of horrors into something light and beautiful.
