This building was part barn conversion and new build back on a footprint of a former agricultural building, using local contacts; bricks of an appropriate size, type and colour were sourced, verified with the conservation officer and planning teams before use. After building the structure was sand blasted the result is a building which doesn’t look like it comes from 2 separate periods.
Clever use of levels allowed an upstairs area with 3 bedrooms and a dressing room into a space which would have previously been wasted loft space.
Challenges in this building included locating the hot water tank at one end of the building and having the kitchen & an en suite located at the opposite end of the building. This was addressed by installing a secondary pump to take the hot water around the house avoiding long delays in getting the water.
