To maintain the character and patina of the decades old barn, every inch of timber was diligently restored by hand, using a wire brush.
The walls, ceiling and subfloor are lined with a wood fibre insulation capable of passive house performance. The board is made from waste timber, natural oils & tannins.
Troweled clay render breathes with the natural insulation whilst complimenting the barn’s rustic aesthetic.
A small porch was added at the western side of the barn, overlooking the flood plains by the creek. It was a conscientious extension, constructed using locally sourced reclaimed timber.
