"The building has been brought back into use again and now also fulfils a role in the local community. The renovation has been very well received by neighbours including the church congregation..."
Situated adjacent to the main Farm House, a Grade II* listed former threshing barn had fallen into a state of disrepair. A proposal was developed to repair and convert the barn structure and to provide ancillary accommodation for the main house, including a home-work space, kitchen, bathroom and guest bedrooms.
The new functions are contained within a series of free standing white timber boxes to the west end, leaving two-thirds of the original double-height volume intact.
The existing modern steel frame is utilised to support a new roof structure without distributing the extra load onto the historic walls. As part of the first phase of works, a new wood-burning boiler was installed in an adjacent outbuilding to provide heating and hot water for both the main Farm House and converted barn.
