Stay tuned...

Money is rolling again. The logjam with the bank has been broken and we should see work resuming on the house within a week or so. The guys at ENER are looking to clear up some space on their lot, so we will be receiving the trailer on the property before too long. Bud is ordering materials to build the deck and is eager to get back to work. Won't be long now before something reselmbling a house will sit atop that lonely old foundation.

Ben: I have been watching the prgress of the barn - when there is favorable weather. It is very exciting, and takes me back to the days almost 25 years ago when the "leeming Lemon" was hatched, and erected that long summer day. Keep at it. It is great. Hoagy

Glad to hear the money is rolling in! Hope that the bank is as laid back in its expectations for repayment as it was in its willingness to disburse the funds!

Hey Ben - just found this site while looking for barn homes... great blog!

Picked up "Old Home Renovation" magazine at Home Depot yesterday, and it has a phenomenal 7-page spread on a converted barn (including the cover shot). I highly reccommend it.

Good luck, and I've bookmarked you to see how things progress. We've been talking about converting several barns to make a complex of buildings for a bed and breakfast out west - maybe a big one left open for an art studio/woodworking shop, and another one finished more completely inside to serve as the B&B.

Good luck!

not quite as cool as your project but we have begun work on the new OLT equipment room which will be in a barn. We began doing the floors on saturday and I couldn't help but think about you and how great of a home conversion this barn would make. To follow our progress check out the Equipment room blog at thenewer.blogspot.com
