Barn Conversion renovation diary

Before and after photos:

Before & after photos of a the renovation of a barn conversion.
This barn conversion project created a fabulous contemporary family home. We stripped all the interior walls back to brick and insulated, plaster boarded and re-plastered throughout. We also laid new floor boards. We totally rewired & re-plumbed the property and installed a new external oil-fire boiler and Mega Flow pressurised system. Our fitters installed a new kitchen & four new bathrooms. Our window fitters installed new feature doors and windows to the front and rear, including aluminium bi-fold doors at the front. We also installed 9 electric/automatic Velux windows. Our joiners created a feature glass ballustrade through the interior stairwell and laid oak flooring with new skirting boards, doors and frames throughout. Outside our builders and landscape gardeners replaced a collapsed drain, laid new pipework, installed new guttering and laid two new Indian stone patios and landscaped the drive area. This major renovation project involved all of the following property services: Plastering, tiling, flooring, kitchen fitting, bathroom fitting, flooring, carpentry, window fitting, electrics & plumbing, landscape gardening, guttering, general building, painting & decorating.
