Give It a Ply Construction-site offcuts comprise the 20-seat table, which Turner made from a birch-core black phenolic-faced plywood, a waterproof material more commonly used to form concrete. The film-coated ply from UK supplier James Latham comes cheap, making it ideal for this kind of experimentation. Cubicle Life The main public space of Ochre Barn is broken up by a full-height OSB pod, which contains a bathroom and a utility room with a view. Up top is the crow’s nest, where Turner can survey his creation and answer any stray emails. Though the bench table, daybed, and outdoor spaces afford plenty of room for the couple to work away from the hubbub of weekend guests, the top of the pod offers dedicated office space.
