Conversion of this beautiful historic Chilterns barn into a useful and dramatic, comfortable living / social space.
The building work was carried out by Neil May Builders. Neil was then in the process of founding Natural Building Technologies. We had the opportunity, as conservation and ecological specialists, to trial many techniques, using natural insulants, lime mortar plinth to stonework, avoiding underpinning etc. Work was completed in 1996.
The project won a Conservation Award from Buckinghamshire County Council.
