Art Studio

After selling their rented New York City loft, Laurie and Colin Greenly bought an abandoned 100 year old dairy barn ("leaning post" and beam) with 7 additional buildings. They did 90% of all phases of the demolition and renovation. Three buildings were removed, the loft of the main barn became studios, and the barn yard was transformed into gardens. For more information about Colin Greenly (now deceased) please visit colingreenly.com. Laurie continues to transform the barn/studio and make it her own.
