BEDFORDSHIRE BARN PASSED!

In Blog,Design,Planning,Timber Frame by Pete Tonks / May 22, 2011 / 0 Comments

As recently blogged, we were hoping to get this cool little barn passed through planning and at last, we did on Wednesday last week.

This one has been a tough one as the plot sits within the rear garden of a Grade II listed house and adjacent to a Grade I Listed 15th century church so you can well imagine.

We got the planning based on sensitivity of the design and its potential impact on its neighbours and also specified some environmental benefits such as ground source heating, potential reclaimed materials externally and also the whole house is going to be timber frame which of course is a very sustainable method of building…

Good news though and we are well pleased for our clients…

In Blog,Misc by Pete Tonks / May 6, 2011 / 0 Comments

This is a scheme i am designing for clients in Gloucestershire…

It is a replacement dwelling in open countryside and an AONB (Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty) so will be a tough one but all looking good so far..

The clients intend to construct the house to Passive-House standards and are aiming for Level 5 on The Code for Sustainable Homes

I will let you know how the planning process goes over the coming weeks.

I have been working with these clients for 3 years now on what has been a difficult planning process but we have at last got it.

The house is going to be constructed with an oak frame from Oakwrights and will be fully clad in soft silver toned oak weatherboarding.
Really pleased with this one as they are great clients
