Brothers Rehan and Josh Nana wanted a “；camp”； to stay in when they went hunting on their family’；s？three-hundred acre farmland in Missouri. The brothers decided to forge one themselves out of one of the abandoned outbuildings on the property and chose an old grain silo. Says Rehan in an article in Garden and Gun：？？“The silo fits into the environment.？And we liked the idea of repurposing something that would otherwise be left fallow.”pillow cover home decor
After consulting friend and architect？Kyle Davis， they turned the hollow metal structure into a two-story loft， using beams from a turn-of-the-century barn to build a staircase and the flooring in the upstairs bedroom. They repurposed tin from the roof of another derelict building to create interior walls and shelving.
The downstairs is the living room. To afford views， they cut out a section of the corrugated steel exterior to insert a huge glass picture window that looks out into the fields. According to？Garden and Gun：

When we look back on our childhood, one of the parts we remember most fondly are the books we grew up learning to read. They shaped our youth in a number of ways, taught us valuable life lessons, and provided the best bedtime stories.

But in?January 2015, he topped them all (literally) when he free climbed?the Dawn Wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park with climbing partner, Kevin Jorgeson. Over the course of 19 days (and nights), the pair ascended?3,000 feet of menacing granite. Curious how one manages?to rest while suspended?thousands of feet in the mountain air, we interviewed Tommy about his bedtime routine while on expedition.
Before you run out and buy every new baby book or device that is “guaranteed” to help your baby sleep better, remember that infant sleep is big business! There are hundreds of websites and self-proclaimed “experts” who promote various “fail safe” suggestions for baby bedtime routines. Most of the individuals promoting these products do not have a sound understanding of the science behind infant sleep, which is a biologically complex and fascinating pattern of synchrony between the neuroendocrine systems of mother and infant. There is no one-size-fits-all program that will work for every baby; your child is unique, and their sleep needs will be, too!
