This was a project of two parts: we converted two existing brick and stone barns into living accommodation, allowing our clients to move out of their old, dilapidated house which we then demolished and constructed a new stone farmhouse. The two buildings were then linked by a glass entrance hall.
The whole development benefitted from underfloor heating throughout, powered by a biomass boiler which we installed in a purpose-built shed.
For the internal structure of the new house we utilised a light-gauge steel frame to speed up the build process. Roof materials on both buildings were a mix of handmade clay pantiles and natural slate.
Woodfibre insulation was used throughout, as was traditional lime mortar for all the masonry elements.
