De-assembled, re-assembled, re-cycled barns

Category: Barns June 28th, 2012 by mbc

There’s an interesting article on Remodelista about an American company that uses the reassembled frames of barns as the basis of modern dwellings. A bit like a private sector, modernising, repurposing St Fagan’s (the museum of Welsh life just outside Cardiff where historic buildings are reassembled from their original site).




I’m not sure what the heritage sector would make of this, but when applied to buildings that would otherwise be lost, I can’t see any drawbacks.

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…
