Architectural Design and Planning Expertise

Our Architectural and Design Consultancy specialises exclusively in the sympathetic restoration, extension, conversion, and relocation of ancient oak-framed buildings.

We have been particularly successful in obtaining difficult planning consents for the change of use and sensitive conversion of redundant farm buildings.

We are pleased to provide either a full architectural design and planning service, or to act as specialist consultants to client's existing architects. In addition, we are always happy to give advice as to how the building materials we have supplied should best be used.

We have received 15 Conservation and Historic Buildings Design Awards for our work.

bulletIf you purchase one of our barn frames to re-erect on your own land, or have your own redundant barn, we can prepare a design, prepare and submit the detailed design and specification of works for Planning, Listed Buildings, and Building regulations approval, let the project and see through to completion.

bulletIf you would like a building for which one of our existing dismantled frames is unsuitable, such as an open-fronted traditional cartshed-style garage, with an office/ guest suite/studio etc. above, we can design and build to your requirements using reclaimed timbers from stock. We do not use new oak where there will be any form of heating, as we consider that the shrinkage and splitting likely to occur is unacceptable.

bulletExtensions and additions to existing buildings and annex buildings. We have considerable experience in designing and building such buildings, very often requiring listed building planning consent, to provide studios, pool-side changing and entertainment areas, and offices.

bulletRestoration of joisted ceilings, oak floors, inglenook fireplaces, replacement of doors, etc. We have the original materials and expertise to ensure that these works are successful.


In summary, we specialise in the sensitive use of reclaimed materials in a traditional manner. Our finished buildings look mellow as though they have been there for many years - they sit comfortably in the landscape.
