Stone Barn Conversion

This stone barn conversion just outside of St Columb Major is to be converted into a two bedroom home for our clients. The design retains all the original features, such as the large side openings and granite quoin stones, however as the barn is relatively small the addition of a sympathetic extension to the north and the rebuilding of the collapsing lean-to on the south have been incorporated, both are to be finished with matching stone and quoins.

The roof and gables are to be re-clad with natural slate in place of the existing corrugated steel sheeting. On the site we found the remains of a ramp leading up to the first floor, this is evidence that the roof space had previously been a hay loft, and therefore we have reinstated a dormer to the new roof to emulate its historic appearance.

To maximise the views of the surrounding countryside the roof of the lean-to is to be made a balcony leading off the master bedroom which, as it is south facing, will receive direct sunlight for the majority of the day.

Creating a new home from an old stone barn takes a great deal of imagination, time, perseverance but the end result can be stunning. We at will work with you to produce the desired result.
