Welcome! My name is Katharine and I have a passion for saving neglected industrial buildings and converting them into breathtaking places to live. As I write, we are embarking upon the biggest challenge of our lives…. the transformation of a crumbling barn complex in North Yorkshire into a contemporary, happy family home.
In this blog I shall be documenting our journey to completion step-by-step, sharing our style inspiration and what we learn along the way. I will also try to bring you gorgeous styling, new restoration techniques, and some juicy before and after images.
I’m writing this blog because as I’ve been doing my research into how to restore this space, I’ve seen very few blogs about converting industrial spaces and barns. I hope this blog becomes a unique destination for devotees of contemporary industrial and rustic style…and a source of of moral support for those who take the plunge….
