From 1883 to 1926, Claude Monet resided in his home at Giverny for forty-three years. During this long time, he made the house match his family’s and work needs. House of the Cider-Press was smaller due to the nearby apple press on the little square. Monet extended it on both sides, resulting in a house only 40 meters long and 5 meters deep.
Monet transformed the adjacent barn into his first studio by adding a wooden floor and stairs leading to the main house. Although Monet usually painted in the open air, he required a space to store and complete his canvases. Monet’s apartment was above the studio, featuring a large bedroom and bathroom. Monet dedicated the left side of the house to his workspace and sleeping quarters.
