Hi all... kim of a thousand questions here... Has anyone ever converted an old barn to living space (I understand that water/electric needs to 'happen' if not already in place). There's a property in Maine, I'm looking at. Has a HUGE barn, the post/beam kind. In great shape, solid as a rock. Been used for hay and animals at various points over 100 years. It has a poured concrete looking foundation. Obviously, I'll need to check into that further to see how solid/extensive it really is. Would it be unreasonable to perhaps create temporary living quarters in the loft area??? Bath on lower floor. Thinking about using barn to 'live' in during the summer while building house. Several summers, maybe... lol. ???
