My son lives in Portland, Oregon and wants to remodel a barn that stands about 10-12 stories high and consists of two floors. I don' want just an every day type of book. I am trying to find some books that are very unique, interesting and show a wide variety of remodeling styles with several architectural designs. He has a lot of ideas already and I thought a really good book would motivate him even more. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.

MashMom - hi, my wife and I had obtained some literature from a place called Yankee Barn Homes in the past. They design and build homes of various sizes/shapes that appear to be New England-style barns on the outside. I know they have a website and you can probably locate it quickly using Google or another search engine. They do sell books as I recall, including some design-type books. Their homes are very nice - and a bit pricey, but that's to be expected. If you can't locate them on the Web, please post back and I'll try looking for them. (My literature is at home and I live away from home during the work week...I wouldn't be able to locate the literature and post back until at least Thanksgiving Day...) I hope this helps some - regards! Jim D/West Point, VA
