Barn Conversion Cockfield

Previously this building was being used to house livestock. Most of the original structure was retained, new internal walls were constructed, and new openings formed in the external walls. Approximately half the original roof structure was retained, and new glulam beams were installed to create vaulted ceilings in the living room and bedroom areas.

New Bungalow Fornham

A large garden was divided to enable the construction of this new build bungalow within the grounds. A timber framed construction with natural slate roof and vertical larch cladding gives a modern feel to this new home.
