In its derelict condition, this barn was gently sliding into the adjacent pond. We supported the building and constructed a cantilevered slab to stabilise the structure. We then commenced a major restoration maximizing the use of existing and reclaimed materials, many supplied by the owner.
We installed new sole and roof plates to the oak frame, laid a new floor in the main barn and installed a new corrugated tin roof reusing existing pantiles for the two gable wings. The staircase was constructed from reclaimed materials and we created a tin-clad shower pod on the mezzanine. The new oak flooring and extensive timberwork allowed our carpenters to make the most of their traditional skills.
The owner and family sealed the floors and timbers enabling them to move in within two weeks of handover.
