Steve and Elissa had already faithfully restored their 18th-century main house in Weston and now wanted to add some fun to the property. They chose to build a new timber-framed barn on the site of their old barn... only this one was made for kids and sleepovers, instead of hay and horses.

Old house renovations are a balancing act, a constant tension between preserving the elements that make the building special while making it work for a modern family.
