So here's looking from the back of the barn to the front. This would make an awesome great room with massive cathedral ceilings. Beyond those two windows on the far side is an incredible view of the Lancaster County farmlands.
This is the view from where I was standing in the last picture...
And with the doors open facing yet more beautiful farmland. (Look at those beams!)
On the right hand side (beyond where that half wall is), that's the other third of the barn. Game room, perhaps? Craft room? Any kind of room you could imagine. Shoot, even a basketball court! Or a massive master bedroom:)
This is the other third of the barn. I can imagine this space as a huge dining room with that farmhouse-style table stretched out and a couple of lantern pendants hanging above.
With the kitchen tucked in this back corner.
Some bedrooms up here perhaps?
Can you imagine all the wood it'd take if you wanted to have a planked ceiling? Which of course I would;) That would look so awesome, wouldn't it?

And the back
The backside of the barn
So what do you think? Could you live in a barn? Obviously I have the floor plan already laid out, so you know I'd be game. I wonder how much it would cost to finish a barn...can't be cheap!
