Extending a property is not a new phenomenon and many older buildings have been transformed from humble abode to substantial dwelling. Homes have always been adapted to suit our lifestyles. The beauty of these homes is reflected through their history, and plotting the life of a house is an interesting aspect to owning such a building. As we acknowledge the importance of traditional craftsmanship, discerning owners may look to replicate the beauty of building in oak when considering extending.
Uninterrupted space and beauty can be achieved by timber-framing a new extension or converting an existing utility building. It is a sad fact that in recent times, many converted barns reveal nothing of their past with little regard given to the nature of the original building. A sensitive approach can achieve fabulous results whilst maintaining the history of a building.
