Homeowner Bunny McBride stands on the
balcony off Prins’s study.
Although Houses and Barns by John Libby
is well known for timber-frame construction,
the ceiling here is conventionally framed,
and the pine beams are nonsupporting. A
woolen rug from Kurdistan is in the center of
the room; the other two are Afghan kilims. A
Guatemalan Highlands cloth is draped over
the table that serves as Prins’s desk.
