The idea was to convert an old barn into a weekend country home incorporating all modern comforts available yet environmentally sustainable. This was the drive behind this particular conversion project. Country life with a touch of contemporary adding to that desire for “simplicity”, warmth and life.

A lot of work went on the choice of energy supplies and energy savings such as internal insulation in cavity walls and the use of electricity rather than oil or gas for heating. A PV system was installed for generating electricity as well as optimizing heating and energy costs.
