Difficult question without seeing the roof of course, and a sandstone roof is uncommon, not sure at all how long it will take to strip the roof, but I should think a maximum of 6K labour to do the entire job. You need guttering as well of course, perhaps a soakaway if not connected to main drainage. I assume this is an old barn, sounds a fascinating project. The timber are sound probably because they are very substantial, it would be advisiable to apply preservative at the time of the work, and of course repair any loose joints etc, there always are some. Spanish slate is a good idea, much cheaper. You would have to check the building is not listed or the area is not a conservation area.
