Detailed Experience

Barn Conversion

Conversion of existing farm building to provide domestic accommodation. Traditional materials were used and existing materials from the original building were re-purposed in the new design. A timber extension was utilised to provide additional accommodation, reflecting the traditional style. The traditional oak truss roof was retained and the thatched roof was replaced.
