Works continue on site with the conversion of a protected 18th century barn. The existing granite shell and been completely repaired and repointed with hydrated lime, replacing all rotten timber lintels with granite. Internally the structure has been fully waterproofed and insulated with replacement concrete ground and first floor slabs providing a robust and thermally efficient envelope. Glulam A-frames and purlins support a new slate roof with several rooflights providing natural light and ventilation to the vaulted and double height spaces below. Combining carefully selected natural materials and finishes to compliment the historic structure, with the latest technology, offers the performance of a modern family home whilst retaining the character of the original building.
