We have just recently laid foundations in preparation for a large extension to ‘Streamside’, a little barn situated in the small isolated hamlet of Middlewood in Cornwall. We have also built the blockwork up to floor level and cast the concrete floor slab. The design detail for this is going to be timber frame so currently we are off site whilst the carpenters erect all the timber work and get the roof in place. Once they have finished their job we will be back on site constructing all the stonework for the external walls and landscaping. We will keep you posted as the work proceeds.
Streamside is a barn that we converted a few years ago, although a small barn in comparision to most, more than two thirds of the external walls had to be rebuilt during this first phase. In the meantime you can see what we did here if you click this link.
