Home Farm, Barn Conversion, Shropshire

Home Farm, Barn Conversion, Shropshire

Home Farm Barn is a charming timber-framed former agricultural barn set in a spectacular rural location on the Herefordshire / Shropshire Border.

One of the challenges facing the architects Owen Hicks architecture was to work sensitively with the historic building and challenging topography to create a modern, energy efficient family home.

The timber frame was stripped of is claddings and carefully repaired, splicing in the minimum amount of new timber before sheathing in a continuous envelope of high-performing insulation concealed under the new timber claddings.

A biomass boiler was employed to heat the barn and the neighbouring farmhouse entirely by renewable means, and modern glazed screens were chosen to slide in behind the open post and beam timber frames to the single storey element, capturing the best of the incredible views over an unspoilt wooded valley.
