The clients brief was to initially undertake a feasibility study to convert an existing traditionally built timber framed barn, which had already obtained outline planning permission, which was originally a farm building into a residential use.

Whiteford CBS work closely between all parties throughout the duration of the project to ensure the most satisfactory end result. Due to its Grade II listed status, the restoration process used traditional building methods and authentic materials in order to be sympathetic towards its historic nature. At the same time we were able to upgrade aspects of the building in order to comply with current building regulations.

The building was underpinned which required temporary support to the timber frame. It was necessary to remove and upgrade structural timbers to gain Building Control consent and this material was reused as non-structural elements such as internal door frames and intermediate non load bearing wall posts. The client utilized our Condition Report for the structural design and subsequent cost appraisal.

Decoration was undertaken to both the internal and external finishes as well as the renewal of external joinery and rainwater goods. Kitchen and bathrooms were renewed, along with the replacement of heating and electrical services. The historical timbers that were salvaged from the wreckage were reinstated throughout the property.
