The property consists of two handsome timber-clad ‘barns’ connected by a short linkway, creating the feeling of an agricultural courtyard.

Constructed of cement-bonded wood-fibre Isotex blocks and clad in larch, with an anthracite grey aluminium standing-seam roofing system, the buildings are both aesthetically pleasing and exceptionally well insulated.

Completed in 2021, this family home was a labour of love constructed entirely by the homeowner and just one other builder.
