When you look at the photograph above you may find it hard to believe that, when we first saw The Hayloft, it was nothing more than a disused and disintegrating Dutch barn, partially buried under rubble and with nothing much going for it.

Nevertheless, the owners of this building had the foresight to see its potential as a family home. Despite the poor condition of the barn, the location made it an attractive proposition as a residential property and our clients asked an architect to draw up a set of plans.

Building Control officers were prepared to offer a 25-year guarantee of quality as long as the work was completed to their exacting standards, so we undertook the work with that in mind. It was a challenging task but one to which we were more than happy to rise.

Starting virtually from scratch, we created what you see here from nothing to something with which our clients are absolutely delighted. We put in all the necessary foundations, drainage, plumbing and electrics, recreated the superstructure and substructure, modelled and completely decorated the interior and finally landscaped the grounds.

What you see here is a modern and practical house but which appropriately reflects its origins as an agricultural building, the roof design echoing the Dutch barn from which it was restored and with door and window apertures in keeping with its history and rural setting.

Another successful project to which we are proud to put our name.
