Barn Homes & Layin’ Roots

Before dropping roots, buying a kid, building 1.5 houses & a few cars I’d like to rebuild/resto/retrofit an old barn into a home on a solid plot of land. The ground level could make for an excellent shop while a segregated upper level would be the living space. It’s a lot to ask from an older barn in the right, open territory so it wouldn’t be a shortcoming to just build a pole building in barn-style with this layout in mind, as far as I’m concerned.

Here are a few photos of this concept, minus shop, in all their glorious beauty.

Also, here’s a great photo of our friend Darren:

    And how long do you suppose that would take to re do a barn project like that ??????

    1. I’m not sure… Do you know anyone with construction arms, and brain?

      A shorter time than a garage project. Maybe reduce the time by a couple years??
