Transformation of this Bedfordshire Barn has been achieved through a residential conversion granted with Prior Approval under Class Q of the Permitted Development Regulations.

This conversion has resulted in a two storey four bedroom family dwelling with integral garage.

The existing cement fibre roof was replaced with a steel corrugated roof. The red brick external walls have been retained, together with the pre-cast concrete primary structure. This ensured that the dwelling continues to reflect the simple architectural style of the agricultural building.

Internal timber frame partitioning was erected to create habitable rooms and a mezzanine to provide first floor bedroom accommodation.

The building has also been carefully designed to have a positive effect on the character and appearance of the area which is close to a Conservation Area.

Transport and highway impacts, noise impacts and contamination risks were all considered and found acceptable in this development.
