Church Farm Barn

Church Farm barn is a conversion of two grade II listed derelict barns in a Suffolk village into a 5 bedroom home involving planning and listed building consent, archaeological surveys and protected species surveys. This complicated scheme involved the total renovation of a timber frame barn dating from 1700 and a clay lump barn from the 1800’s. Traditional materials such as lime render, lime mortar and lime wash paint along with oak framing and clay lump repair were combined with super efficient insulation, an air source heat pump and underfloor heating to provide a contemporary yet sympathetic conversion. Existing walls both internally and externally were maintained in place and the main barn was converted into one large open space with a double sided fireplace dividing kitchen and living rooms whilst the existing spaces of the clay lump barn were utilised for bedrooms. The main barn openings were replaced with glazing and sliding folding screens to fully open up these entrances as was the case when used for agriculture. The open plan layout maintains the feel and space of the original agricultural building.
