This an ongoing project I’ve been working on for nearly two years. Just can’t seem to get a break on weather when I have time to work. Old barn was my grandfathers tractor shed, he was a Farmall man. I’m converting to a 14×28 work shop for ammo reloading, modeling, library, napshack and hide away. Wanted to keep the barn as close to original on the inside but give it a facelift to match my new shop. Plan to line the interior with the siding I took off the outside. I have roofing purlin and r-panel waiting to be installed with insulation in between the old corrugated tin and the r-panel to help with heating/cooling. Single farm door and double windows up front. Roof will be extended out 8 feet for an awning to cover the door and Windows.

Sounds like a MAN CAVE to me.
