Duncan and Andrea’s listed barn conversion was featured in the property supplement of the Metro Newspaper today (issue 19 March 2019). The article is a realistic account of what a conversion might entail. The ups and the downs! This major renovation project was extensive and complex and was carried out whilst the family lived on site.
The couple loves the functionality of the family home they have created, and it is modern, homely and cosy.
They spent a day on the photo shoot, which was great fun. It allowed them to work again with Langport photographer Bill Bradshaw and meet journalist Chantelle Horton who came down to Somerset to quiz them about the project. It was also the perfect opportunity to think about everything they love about this home.
We love the February 2018 issue of Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine. It features a barn conversion project close to our hearts – a personal one – Our own self-build project.
We tried to apply our passion and expertise to designing and building our own home. Every architect and designer should know what it feels like to be a client. All the stress and excitement involved in a project that you are sinking your life’s savings into! We experienced everything first-hand. We kept to our tight budget and timescale. Even when the bats had very different ideas about delaying the build and learned some valuable lessons along the way. Today we can share those lessons learnt with our clients.
