Building Progress ~ June 2008

Category: Barn Conversion Journal July 9th, 2008 by mbc

something old, something new...
Insulation.

June has been a pretty slow month … progress has been dominated by insulation and plasterboard.

First fix electrics and plumbing are complete. The roof and walls are being insulated and plasterboarded. Internally, the old stone barn is being lost behind a new structure of wood, plasterboard, insulating panels and rock wool. It feels like we’re building a boat within and completing filling and old stone barn.

This stage of development throws up some interesting contrasts, junctions between stone walling, old wooden beams, new oak beams, plasterboard and block work. There’s a balance between old and new, ancient and modern that we need to play with and get correct – in doing so we’ll make the most of the building and make it an attractive place to live. If we get it wrong then we’ll have created a tacky, aesthetically confusing and uncomfortable anachronism.

The windows and doors are due in July – exciting times.
