furni's been busy. It's fitting that the company known for clocks would have at least one project in Switzerland. Nothing to do with clocks mind you, furni principal Mike Giles has a friend there, Jay, who recently bought a small mountainside barn (built in 1799!) and converted into a home. As Mike put it, Jay literally swept out the hay and started a 9-month conversion. Its now a 3-story, 1350 sq. ft house. furni supplied the wood finishing in the kitchen and some of the wood furniture. Interesting note, the kitchen floor tile is made of the original slate roof. More after the jump.
