This is a project I cannot wait to see completed. A small barn that we have extended with two extra 'rooms' - both vaulted and with typical Border Oak detail such as a glazed entrance and inglenook fireplace. The existing building has also been remodelling with new dormer windows, added framing and a new roof.
I love this old wall - which will give texture and visual interest and works especially well against the new frame. Looks like it might take a bit of work to knock through...............
A 'cruck' frame of sorts (the arched timbers) with a fireplace at the end and french doors onto the garden
The new roof makes huge difference to the overall look - adding visual coherence and ensuring that the old building isn't the 'poor relation' (which can be a problem when adding to an old structure with oak framing)
I like the dipped ridge line of the central section which breaks up the linear layout and ensures the original building is dominant.
But this is my favourite part - basically a large glazed porch with french doors and glazed gable. Mmmm!
Another lovely project that I will try to update you with as the weeks pass by.
