Barn Conversion to Dwelling

This was also a listed building, overall the aim was to keep the external appearance as close as possible to the original, though the building was in a fairly dilapidated state the finished result turned out very well.

The original Barn

as we were starting the conversion

Inside was pretty basic

with a concrete floor

and it was pretty dated

originally it was pretty grotty inside

Some internal cracking was evident

Pretty bad cracking to the original walls

Particularly at the truss locations

serious cracking at the truss bearings

The trusses themselves were salvagable

but needed some replacment members, a lot of sanding and complete timber treatment, and then a crane to get them back into place.

Quite a bit had to be dismantled

at last time to start rebuilding

What we wanted to achieve

the plans

Then it started to go back together

All the stones were manhandled down to ground level, stacked in rows marked with the original locations and then rebuilt as original

New first floor in place
