Jonesville Project Spotlight

In the heart of Jonesville, a unique project unfolded, one that skillfully blends family values with architectural ingenuity. At Robinson Renovation & Custom Homes, we're known for our innovative design-build approach; so, naturally, we took on the challenge of converting an old horse barn into a modern accessory dwelling unit (ADU), crafting a perfect blend of rustic charm and contemporary warmth for the family's grandmother to visit in comfort whenever she pleases.

We'll begin with the kitchen, where sleek modern finishes meet charm and warmth. The deep, rich quartz countertops effortlessly bring out the bold veining in the quartz backsplash and coordinate beautifully with the walnut-toned floating shelves. Down below is luxury vinyl plank flooring in a lighter tone that carries a darker grain which also coordinates with the dark countertops as well as the dark island. Up above, we chose a white-washed tongue-and-groove ceiling, which we carried throughout the main living area. 

On the opposite end of the open kitchen, barn doors conceal the large pantry. This allows for plenty of storage without encumbering the space with hinged doors. The doors are in a transitional style that matches the Shaker cabinets, adding to the blend of modern style with a dash of tradition. As for the hardware used throughout, the mix of matte black and brushed gold draw from the warm tones of the wood and the cool tones of the quartz and island paint color.

In the dining and living area, sunlight pours into the space thanks to a large storefront window. It's a great complement to the contemporary chandelier over the dining table that's hanging from a large beam that anchors the vault ceiling in the same wood tone as the floating shelves nearby. By using a light off white, the whole space feels airy and open, reflecting the natural light to completely brighten the space. 


The ensuite bathroom and full bathroom allow just enough space to fit every amenity one could need, plus plenty of storage. Once again, space is saved by using a half-glass enclosure for the walk-in shower. The warm tone of the herringbone flooring throughout plays off of the gold hardware and plumbing fixtures while the quartz countertop an shower tiles add a dose of sophistication. 

Every ADU space needs to function as well as a main home, so we included a small laundry room with another floating shelf that supplies just enough storage for the necessities. With two bedrooms, plenty of closet space, an incredibly large porch, and enough living room space for the family to gather comfortably, this well-planned ADU is full of character, practicality, and style.
