SUFFOLK BARN UPDATE

Here is a little update on my Suffolk barn clients…

I have tried to capture a quick snapshot of all the hard work which has taken place over the last 4 weeks.

They had their Oakwrights frame delivered 4 weeks ago and are now in the closing stages of having this fully erected and thermally wrapped using the amazing Wrightwall Natural system…. in effect, a near watertight shell! Amazing to have such a large part of the build up and done in the space of a month.

You may remember this is the project we spent 7 years getting planning for so to say the clients are enjoying the speed of everything now is an understatement! And they managed to get rented accommodation right next to the plot which is perfect for day to day management.

Check out the ‘wrapped’ building already. The horizontal battens provide fixing for plasterboard and also create a service void for electrics/plumbing
