We can also provide external landscaping including hardscaping, driveways, patios and pathways.
Converting a barn is always an exciting project. They offer an abundance of design opportunities so you can create an impressive finish. Some barn conversion ideas include:
If the property is located close to utility supplies such as gas, water, electricity and sewers, we can advise which supplier to contact for your conversion to be connected to these supplies. In cases where the property is not close to these utilities, we can advise on solar panel installation, ground and air source heat pumps, generators, oil fired heating, biofuel heating systems and sewage treatment plants.
The planning requirement will depend on certain factors. If the building is listed you will need to apply for listed building consent. Many barns are subject to permitted development rights (Class Q) which permit an agricultural building to be converted for residential use.
We can point you in the right direction for advice relating to the type of planning permission you will need to obtain, so contact us to arrange a site survey.
Because the shell of the building (barn) is already in place, there is no need to hire an architect or similar professional.
Once all planning has been submitted, the conversion usually takes a minimum of 5 weeks. This will depend however on the size of the conversion and the materials needed. Contact us for more information and a quotation.
