A contemporary modern home

The client purchased a former chicken shed to convert into a family home. As can be seen in the pictures the existing structure was in poor condition and required a new portal frame to build around.

The client’s brief was to create a contemporary modern home with views across the neighbouring fields and paddock.

The conversion was classed as Class Q which already had planning permission. We were instructed to produce all of the construction drawings and specifications for the build.

The conversion is characterised by the high vaulted ceilings with large roof lights. There is a large living space.

The build was competed by a local contractor.

    This is a good example of how a simple lean-to extension can transform a space to create a large modern kitchen and dining area to become the heart of the home.

    The client’s brief was to create an open-plan living space that was to be a complete departure from the boxy feel the house had previously. The client also wanted plenty of oak features.
