On our property at the Old Sweetwater Cottage, there is a barn that's over 135-140 years old. It isn't one of those HUGE barns. It's only 18 X 20 (with two stories) -- we'll call it "quaint."
My husband grew up with this barn next to his home (the old cottage).
It's our favorite thing.
We like its "pebble" foundation, even though it needs a little TLC.
We like its dimensions.
We like its history.
For years we've half-joked that we'd like to live in a barn, but since we never measured this one, we thought it'd be way too small.
Now we're really considering adding onto it to make a new-Old Sweetwater Cottage....something around 900 square feet, plus a garage?
When we believe we're ready to proceed, I'll take photos & keep you posted on the progress if you'd like.
Let me know.
