@Steve Masley & @ PermaScapes - thanks so much for the very good information you provided me regarding troughs. The issue of the heat gives me pause...I had not thought about that. I live in Texas near Dallas and it gets very hot here in the summer. So, that may very well be my determining factor. Thanks again.

If one is built on a wooden deck, do I need any drainage for the bed?

Beautiful! I love the stone & the tile/birds. I would have preferred sconces for lighting though, to avoid shadows.

cordybrown and others who want to buy a barn: if you are a do-it-yourself kind of family and cultivate contacts in the country, you can find yourself a barn for a thousand dollars cash and you will have all the beautiful virgin lumber you need. Craig's List and Ebay are some places to start. It's where I did my research, before I decided to sell.

It's a lot of work to take down a barn and you may want to have someone on your team who is familiar with construction processes. You'll need a lot of muscle and brawn to handle big pieces that weigh hundreds of pounds, a cherry picker to remove the roof and get to the rafters, a lot of nails to be removed on site before the wood is loaded for hauling, a big rig to haul the lumber, a place to store the lumber out of the weather until you need it, some sort of numbering system to know what sizes and kinds of lumber you have and exactly where it is in the stored stacks. Require a tetanus shot for everyone working on the project. Take the barn down in the winter. And watch out for snakes and other resident wildlife. And be sure there is a road to haul out your treasures from the deconstruction site. And of course, lots of photos of the wood and pieces you especially like and ways to keep track of where they are stored.

I am quite serious - this is what the buyer of my barn did - and that's just skimming the surface. But my point is this: it can be done and you can have your dream home with the lumber you salvage. Sweat equity.
