  • A childhood friend lived in a renovated barn - used to be on a farm, but as the town grew and the farm got sold it ended up being in town. Not too bad. It was done many many years ago, before I was born, so I have no idea what it took to do it. A couple from our church did it just a few years ago - took them about a year to do it, they already had water & electricity out to the barn in the first place so that saved a lot of work. But it was a monstrous project. I haven't seen the inside of it (we're not close to them so no invites, lol) but I"ve heard it's crazy gorgeous.

  • Heck ya I'd do it! There'd be enough space for a studio - two of them, one for me, one for Sweetheart!

  • I would absolutely love that. There is nothing more beautiful than an old barn. I've seen some of them done and it's amazing!

  • Well I am not so good with knowing what the end product would look like so for me it is a no go. I would not be able to deal with it.
