The conversations behind the barn owner’s back lasted 15 years.
The old barn was used as a warehouse for tractors and hay for a very long time, until one day it was bought by a man who decided to make a house for himself in it.
Even before the purchase, the locals did not like the barn, they considered it too unpretentious.
But when the millionaire chose him to live in, the eccentric man immediately aroused ridicule.
The conversations behind the back of the owner of the barn continued for 15 years, until he invited the neighbors to visit.
Englishman Alan Yeomans bought an old barn on the outskirts of Derbyshire and decided to build a house in it.
For his part, he had a plan. He wanted to preserve the historical appearance of the area, even though it was a barn.
Therefore, he slightly insulated the outside of the barn, but used all the same materials that were used for the construction of agricultural buildings. For part of the facade, he used old stone, giving the building an even more neglected, according to neighbors, look.
The front side was lighter, but the neighbors didn’t see it.
Alan dressed, despite his wealth, also in simple clothes, and those around him were happy to discuss his eccentric neighbor.
This went on for 15 years, until the man invited people to visit, deciding to have a barbecue.
It was here that Alan’s plan was revealed when he created his house. Behind the nondescript barn facade, the man created a spacious interior. There was not even a hint of the past of the building.
Original paintings on the walls, gold inlays, antique furniture and new appliances.
Part of the house has been converted into a garage. Yeomens, as it turned out, was fond of collecting classic cars.
From bullying on the same day there was no trace. But the man no longer communicated with the neighbors.
