At Slaley we converted an old and disused barn to a 4 bedroom family Home. We had to retain much of the existing structure but we were able to build a new stone frontage to the main building elevations using reclaimed stone. Oak was our client's main material request. We installed oak trusses creating exposed vaulted ceilings to the 1st floor together with internal ledge and braced doors, windows and staircases. Our client was also one of our first to use solar panels to assist in heating their hot water which is still very effective to this day.
