This unusual development project required the reconstruction of a very large barn and reconfiguration of the buildings to create high quality holiday accommodation. A 1960’s shallow pitched corrugated roof, resting on a lightweight steel truss structure, was removed and a timber roof re-instated at a steeper pitch, using old photographs as a guide.
Reclaimed materials were used throughout wherever possible to create two very sizeable holiday units with a large open plan central sitting room which can either be shared between the units or used by one. The walls to the former yard at the rear were retained and reconstructed to give private gardens to each of the units.
An adjoining smaller barn provides a further single dwelling as part of the development and the three units have been configured in such a way as to maximise the privacy for holidaymakers renting the units.
