“A compact stone barn in the Irish countryside is now a sumptuous holiday cottage perfect for romantic escapes. The current owner converted the barn, now named Crows’ Hermitage. It is located behind his house in the hamlet of Ardcath, less than an hour’s drive north of Dublin.”
Converting/repurposing old buildings is one of the most efficient ways to build. In this case, the hard work of building the stone masonry walls was already done. I think the interior turned out particularly nice.
