Planning consent for two houses and two flats were received and taken through to a complete project using traditional building methods and materials. There was also a requirement to convert the existing storage space above the shop into habitable accommodation.
To ensure that these buildings sat comfortably within the conservation area of this beautiful town, untreated oak cladding was specified whilst also using locally sourced stone and construction techniques where necessary.
Modern insulating and sound proofing methods were adopted to ensure that the completed building did not lose an unnecessary amount of energy through walls, floors and roof. This is the simplest and cheapest of all the energy saving measures and should be the first on the energy saving list.
