Silo Homes Are Fast Becoming A Trend In Real Estate – Check Out A Couple Cool Examples

Abbey Road Farm Bed & Breakfast: Carlton, Oregon

Thirteen years ago, hospitality industry vets John and Judi Stewart left Las Vegas to live on an 82-acre farm in Oregon wine country. They built a house the first year, then set their sites on converting the property's old grain silos into "Silo Suites." The result is Abbey Road Farm, a quaint bed-and-breakfast that also plays host to concerts and weddings.

Abbey Road is still a working farm; the Stuarts grow vegetables and raise chickens and goats for eggs and dairy, respectively. Their farmstead goat's cheese is available for guests to purchase.

Silo House: Phoenix Arizona

You can get almost anything online these days. Architect Christoph Kaiser bought a 1955 grain silo from a Kansas farmer over the internet. He then converted the steel structor into a cozy studio for him and his wife.

All of the furniture in the home, save for two Eames dining chairs, are custom pieces built by Christoph, according to Dwell.

Christoph insulated the home by adding 10 inches of spray foam between the exterior and interior walls. A retractable skylight in the silo's roof, once an oculus that aerated grain, helps cool the home's interior.
