Twll Barn


The existing barn was a lovely example of traditional oak framing, but unfortunately there had been massive irreversible damage to the majority of the timber. The strategy employed was to preserve any good timbers only. This made for an honest solution in the adaption and salvage of a building and enabled us to focus on a fabric first approach. 

We re-designed their existing plans to make the plan more spacious and made a 'section 73 variation to condition' application to the local authority. 

The modest floor area has two bedrooms with a third ground floor office / study. The master bedroom and ensuite was separated from the guest quarters. 

The design whilst simple required careful alignment between the windows in the main open plan area. The large oak frame to the front was designed to carry the beautiful Danish Kastrup windows and doors. We partnered Ty Cefn Ltd to design and manufacture a bespoke timber frame.
