What is a Barn Conversion?
A barn conversion is a disused farm building that is both renovated and converted it into a liveable space for residential or commercial use. With the decline of farming in the Cornwall area they became a viable alternative to other types of housing. With their traditional brickwork exterior and exposed beamed interiors they look great and are set in stunning rural "green belt" locations. Barn planning permission is normally required as external barn features are expected to be renovated and retained but we can help with all that so give us a call and we could make your barn conversion dreams come true.
Lime plaster has been used on buildings for hundreds of years. Lime has a porosity that allows the structure to breathe and reduce moisture build up.
