Media Room From Blog Cabin 2012

The home's former attic space is converted into a recreation area, where movies, games and lively conversation go hand in hand.

Exposed collar ties, installed at every other rafter, extend the rustic motif. "The Mega Den is ginormous and the entrance to the office is insane," says Anitra. "Reclaimed barn wood wall, repurposed swing door-turned-barn door, giant custom ladder leading to the loft — it just brings this wicked-cool cabin vibe to the room."
