In October 2001 I become the proud, but slightly shell-shocked, owner of a huge, derelict, rambling old barn up in the hills of central Scotland.

I’m an accountant; I had no building experience and no idea what was involved in converting a barn.

In the intervening years I have tried my hand at most trades, with varying success. I have been close to financial ruin on more than one occasion, and I have contemplated giving the whole thing up more times than I care to remember.

But now, more than 13 years later, I am finally coming to the end of the journey, and I thought it would be fun to share some of the highs and lows, the frustrations and the successes, and maybe some hints and tips on how not to convert a barn….


If you have a dream – always follow it!

  1. Wow what an amazing woman you are! I love it when gals aren’t afraid to do things! And sounds like you are not afraid! I too am self taught. Isn’t it a great feeling to say, “Hey, I did that!” I also love the sound of your tenacity! YOU keep on keeping on! Best wishes in all you do! Cheers, Koko❀
