Listed building Development, Amersham

Conversion of a Grade 2 Listed farmhouse and outbuildings, into 3 new luxury homes. [Phase 2 of 3]

This is the second phase of the development and concerns the conversion of the existing barn and garage into a new dwelling.

Phase 2 of the renovation included some very important aspects of the property and surrounding outbuildings. At this phase, it was time to take a greater look into the existing barn and garage so we could further design additional features. Many people choose to build a barn garage onto their property so they can make it custom for their needs, but in this case the buildings already existed on the land. This means we needed to take a close look at it to ensure it was up to standard. This also included looking at the roof, windows and new entry/ exit points. On a glance, most of the outbuildings required a new roof since the previous roof had been shot to pieces over the years of exposure to the elements! For such a job, we would need to contact a roofing contractor, roofing round rock would be our first choice if we were in the US (I’ve done some renovations out there before) but we’re in the UK, so it would appear we’d take a trip to the pub and find some roofers! No doubt we’ll find some wonderful people and some fun information about the area whilst we nurse a pint or two.
Not only this but with all the development going on, we wanted to make sure the house and the surrounding land was safe and secure from damage. This meant we had to look into a dumpster rental. We took inspiration from the good things we heard about dumpster rental in Aurora and tried to find a something similar near us. As roofing can be quite a messy job, and cause a lot of debris, it was vital that we had our waste management process sorted out and planned. Listed houses need to be taken care of just that little bit more than usual.
