Prairie Grain Bin Turned Bucolic Retirement Home | Bedford Corners Real Estate

Who lives here: Kate Morris, a retired art teacher
Location: Great Falls, Montana
Size: 900 square feet (84 square meters); 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms
That’s interesting: This house was constructed from a grain bin.

BEFORE: So there the grain bin (shown here) sat for nearly eight years. After Morris retired from her teaching gig, and after a couple of years she spent taking care of her older brother, serendipity came calling. She knew she needed professional help to make her dream a reality, and by chance she was reunited with Nick Pancheau, an architect whom she had taught in grade school, and whose younger brother she had also taught. She explained her grain-bin idea to him over the phone, and “he just got it,” Morris says.
