A Fixer-Upper!

That moment when you really need to trust your architectural vision.

These photographs are of a barn in Gloucestershire that we busy completing the technical design for construction.  The vegetation has been stripped away to reveal the building in all its glory. Thinking buildings gained consent for this 4 bedroom barn conversion last year and the site (and building) was sold for development. Of course it looks worse than it is, the photo’s don’t show the attractive brick facade to the roadside, and the rather inventive use of cladding (using anything that was at hand by the looks of it) will be stripped back  to the timber frame and trusses to allow for re-cladding and the introduction of a new traditional slate roof. More to follow as we track progress on this transition from ugly ducking to a homely barn and home…….
