A Guide to Barn Renovations & Conversions

Building The Dream

We’re often asked the same questions: how do you get started with a barn conversion? How do you finance the project? How do you know which barn is a sound investment and how do you budget effectively? We love answering these questions from excited would-be converters, and about a year and a half ago our founder thought he might try writing down some of the answers..

Daniel says: “Barn conversions are my passion, and it’s one that everyone at Bespoke also shares. In writing this book, I want to help people turn their dreams into reality. This book is not a manual, it’s not even a how-to guide, because there are so many ways to go about creating your perfect barn. Instead, I like to think of it as a starting point, an ethos, an insight into approaching a project the Bespoke way.”
