@Jennifer Johnson: You most certainly can. Check this link for ideas on how to create a loft from a barn as John Hill suggests:

You'd be amazed at how many rural abandonments have been, or are in the process of, being turned into rural lofts. It's the best of both worlds while maintaining that rural authenticity.

I love your narrative. I think the key to the industrial/modern/Victorian loft is to adhere to a design palette that is highly redacted. There should be one very tight program for the old, and one for the new. In my own renovation we're resisting the urge to introduce new things that are faux-old. Also, we're avoiding the virtuoso elements that scream 'look at me!' Really enjoyed this piece!
