To provide a modern family home with good sized rooms and contemporary living space.
Dunkirk, between Faversham and Canterbury, Kent
This building was originally a barn structure on a farm. At some point in its history, it was converted to a dwelling but the work was not carried out to a very high standard and some of the original barn structure was never uplifted during the transition. Hence some basic structural works have had to be carried out to the existing building such as underpinning of foundations and uplift and repair of the original roof to meet modern construction codes.
The building is of brick construction under a slate roof and the 1st floor is clad in oak ship-lap. Although remaining the same, as previously stated there have been many improvements to the existing structure. In addition to this, we are adding a very contemporary steel framed 2 storey extension and a new two storey front entrance porch. Both are to be clad to match the existing but the extension also provides 360-degree views of the surrounding garden and countryside over 2 floors.
This should be a stunning project when complete which is due in May 2019.
