Heritage Barns raise the bar on adaptive reuse: Based in Waco, Texas, the company finds disused barns from across the country, which they then dismantle, restore, and re-erect—the best bit, of course, is the barn-raising party. N.B. To learn how architect Kimberly Peck (a member of the  Remodelista Architecture/Designer Directory  ) turned a Heritage Barn timber frame into an energy efficient home in the Catskills, see our post: The Architect Is In: A Rural Barn Transformed for Modern Living . Above: Naturally aged rough sawn cypress siding clads the Atlamont Dutch Barn, originally from Altamont, New York, and now relocated in Alexandria, Louisiana. Above: The Brown Road Barn in Westchester County, New York, makes full display of its exposed structural timber. Above: A tiled shower has been inserted into the loft space of a the Brown Road Barn.
