we have been working for a while on this project to convert  a group of barns near hartpury, glos, to low energy  dwellings


the design is underlaid by a planning approval from 1998, but otherwise has been a new project


the first barn dwelling conversion was approved in late 2011.


the building regs. approval was very rapid and unconditional following a detailed design


thermal modeling predicts space-and water-heating costs of  £200-300 using a new wood pellet boiler and underfloor heating


designing super-insulation for such buildings is a particular challenge, but perfectly possible


phase 1 completed 2014
