Project Location: Claverdon
A farmers son has returned to the family home of over forty years and Brock Charles Architects converted the vacant barn as a new family home. He will assist with running the farm and slowly take over whilst his parents remain next door in the farmhouse and enjoy retirement. The significant works involved underpinning the shallow foundations and carefully refurbishing and improving the agricultural building throughout to a new two bedroom home, whilst retaining the character of the original barn. The existing queen post oak trusses were kept unaltered and key features that were otherwise too high can now been seen close up, carpenter signature markings and all.
