Barn Conversions & Holiday Lets

Barn Conversions As Dwellings

Barns to be converted into open market dwellings have to be treated in a slightly different way to normal house extensions and new builds etc. First of all, do they meet the criteria of all the local Planning policies? Also, with any building that has never had a dwelling use, a structural report will need to be instigated and also a wildlife survey and ecology report will also need to be in place. Armed with this information, the design process can then begin and the outcome can be very dynamic.

Barn Conversions & Holiday Lets

The West Country being one of Britain's most popular holiday destinations, it is only natural to consider Barn Conversions & Holiday Lets if you have old disused buildings i.e. barns etc. and indeed land that may be used for timber lodges. This is a very good way of gaining Planning Permission to increase your income in the holiday let area. This type of Planning Application has a different set of rules to gain permission and over the years our company has had many dealings in this area and can help guide you through what is and what is not possible. With our free initial on site Visit (in the North Devon Area— further afield we do have to implement a small fee) we should be able to gain a reasonable assumption of all your possibilities for this very lucrative trade.

Each house has its own unique presence and for those who inhabit them, their own special requirements, which can change throughout the years. We at Caves To Castles can help you to extend, remodel, refurbish or renovate all house types, whilst still being sympathetic to their original concept. Also, where we need to completely redesign the existing structure to a more 21st century approach, our expertise can be invaluable.
