Barns Of The Yorkshire Dales - History, Preservation and Grand Design
by Andy Singleton and David Joy (Foreword Bill Bryson)
Price: £12.99 (24% off list price)
Hardback / Full colour 160 pages (Great Northern Books)
The Yorkshire Dales have literally thousands of barns scattered among the fields and villages. Many have seen better days others have undergone dramatic transformations. This book falls into two distinct halves, representing the diverse interests of its authors. David Joy, from Upper Wharfedale farming stock, knows many individual barns at first hand. He portrays a year in the life of a typical barn and puts the subject in perspective with a profile of each barn on the Wharfedale farm that he owns. In the second part, Andy Singleton, an experienced builder in the Dales who has worked on many barn conversions, then covers the construction methods and materials that were used to build barns and explains in detail how they can be converted into dwellings. The practical information is complemented by case studies of some of the most successful conversions, which make the book essential reading for anyone contemplating this adventurous but rewarding exercise. Plans and photographs - both archive and specially commissioned - complete a truly fascinating work that breaks completely new ground.

It also looks at ways of creating more individual kitchens and bathrooms, and at ideas for exterior landscaping and swimming pool projects. The book also includes a 64-page technical guide - 'The Basics' which runs through the details of the buying process, how to get the power, water and so on sorted out, plus a look at the French building trades and how to work with them. It also includes more detailed technical information, with a description of the planning permission process, and the guarantees that protect your rights as a consumer in France. Of course, a renovation project in France is usually aimed at creating an enjoyable holiday home, where the owners can start to become part of a new community. So we also have a short chapter on how to build friendships with the new French neighbours: it won't tell you everything, but it does include a brief guide on that inherently French style of greeting people: kissing!

The Barn Book The Barn Book
by Kate Corbett-Winder
Price: £17.50 (30% off list price)
Hardcover 128 pages (Ebury Press)
Living in a barn requires a sense of adventure, but once experienced it becomes an addictive way of life, according to the owners of some of these converted barns. Now, in place of cows, horses, fodder or hops, the new occupants of the barns are people who have painstakingly restored a valuable part of the British countryside. Many are artists or architects whose imaginations have been challenged by the potential of a medieval monastic barn, Palladian stable block or towering hopkiln. 24 barns are featured, accompanied by colour photographs showing both the exteriors and interiors, and all were once empty, threatened or derelict. Salvaged by imaginative conversions that respect their agricultural past and dominant architectural features, the barns have been transformed into a variety of comfortable and surprisingly practical homes.

Recycled Spaces: Converting Old Buildings Into New Homes
by Vinny Lee, Ray Main (photographer)
Price: £19.51
Hardcover 144 pages (Soma Books)
Who wouldn't be intrigued by the idea of living in a dairy barn, a movie theatre or a hat factory? From the urban warehouse to the rural church, buildings in all possible settings are being converted into homes. Recycled Spaces shows you how to successfully remodel all types of old structures into beautiful domestic dwellings which still preserve the history and nuances of their unique heritage. From choosing a building to blending necessary modernizations with original features, author Vinny Lee takes you through every phase of "recycling" your space. Not only will the result be spirited and impressive, but the process promises to be exciting and satisfying. Lee emphasizes the importance of "breathing life" back into these historic properties and landmarks—nurturing their unique features, rather than reinventing or hiding them. To make this resuscitation possible, Recycled Spaces offers practical advice, imaginative tips, inspiring case studies, and 175 lavish, full-color photographs, as well as a complete list of suppliers. All the buildings highlighted in Recycled Spaces—from a spring factory in Paris, to a cattle barn in England, to a school house in Brooklyn—display the perfect, simple balance of old and new design. But critical modernizations, such as sufficient light, ample storage space, and proper insulation, are never overlooked. Unusual structures require a different approach to design. Each building has had a previous life that constitutes much of its character, allure, and mystery. Recycled Spaces provides the guidelines, wisdom, and inspiration to help you revitalize and personalize your space so that it can add yet another chapter to its rich history.
