Cotswold Barn Renovation
Bought as part of the development side of the business, the property consisted of an original hay barn with the old milking shed as a separate dwelling. Both properties were refurbished in late 1970, which sadly meant few original character structures existed.
First to be developed was the milking shed to create a one bed, shower, WC, laundry, kitchen/dining and sitting room. Whilst these works were underway a timber frame 2 story extension was ordered from Finland. The final look and feel is a Scandinavian light and cosy barn with a free-flowing large kitchen, dining room to seat 10, entrance hall, WC, coat storage and sitting room. Upstairs has three beds, two bathrooms and laundry room.
- Refurbishment of the Milking Barn to create the Design studio, office, but primarily a second living space of kitchen, dining, laundry, bedroom shower and WC.
- Securing planning permission for a timber framed extension to allow for the open plan kitchen looking out onto the garden and a large master bedroom, dressing room and ensuite above.
- Achieving an open plan ground floor living space by removing walls to create light filled space inspired by Scandinavian homes.
