You guys have convinced me to re look at this. I can do the electrics myself and the barn does need to be rewired from scratch, there is s combination old old and new and I'd feel happier knowing it was done right. There are still benefits to both solutions and it sure is nice to have choices. The only thing that makes me think more about the old barn is that it will be easier to insulate which I've decided to do after my recent experience with a Polar Vortex. I'll let you know what I decide and share pictures. In the meantime, you're all welcome to join for the party we are planning up there as soon as the weather warms up!!
