Could you live in a barn?

I could! If they looked like some of these conversions. After doing all the research, I'd definitely need mine to be sectioned into different rooms as opposed to a conversion left as a vast open space with a loft. You?

Look at how they start, with just the stone foundation!

Could I? We did!

We lived in a converted Barn in upstate NY for awhile...we were just renting it, but it had won some architechtural awards...It was cool with a spiral staircase up to the hay loft...3 floors, large modern kitchen, and everything else was all open. Loved it! 'Cept we did have some mice!!

Lovely pix Ashley!!

I would love to live in a barn....in fact, I grew up on a Ranch and we had a huge barn that even as a little one, I would envisioned bunk cubbies all along the side of the upstairs....and a giant true-divided window where the openings were. Wonderful gift is this post. Ginny

* Living in a converted "barn" (in an area where there are 4 SEASONS... would HAVE to have SNOW!) has always been a rather "secret dream" of mine... these pics just reinforce that dream, so, I THANK YOU for the SMILES!!!

Best,
