The renovation of a dilapidated steading and milking parlour has now been completed in rural Aberdeenshire. The result is a spacious and light 4 bed family home.
Living a small damp farmhouse this private client had the vision to adapt their derelict outbuildings into a spacious modern home. The open plan living space is a former milking parlour and the bridles used to tether cows can still be seen on the internal gable. Original steel trusses are exposed, and a dramatic guillotine door frames the entrance. The retention of these internal features was made possible by the decision to over-clad the building with a new insulated shell clad in larch.
The bedroom wing by contrast is a stone building. It looks original but in fact an existing ruin on this site was completely dismantled and the Aberdeenshire granite reused to clad a new timber framed structure.
If you have any exciting renovation ideas or projects that you wish to discuss please don't hesitate to get in contact.
