Project Story

The original barn was a total wreck, with missing walls, partially missing roof, piles of rubble stone where walls had collapsed, etc.

The extensive renovation work required new foundations, damp-proof course, new internal/external walls, new slate roofing, new windows, doors and furniture, and the re-build of external stone steps, making a bold visual impact.

Sustainable building and eco materials were widely used, such as lime mortar, natural stone, hemp boards, reclaimed oak. Pavadentro insulation, Diffutherm, Dura natural lime, cast iron rain water goods, welsh slate slabs and sills, and slate scree were also used. The local Architect, WA Spees of Ambleston was recommended by Carreg, having previously designed another project on the same site.

The property is now five-star holiday accommodation.

'Carreg Construction turned an old ruin with a tin roof into an incredible home. The quality of the finish is simply outstanding. It was hugely encouraging to work with a group of professionals whose enthusiasm for the project was evident and whose craftsmanship shines through in every room. They are an exceptional team and a pleasure to work with.' Andy Davies, Client
