The Location is Montgomeryshire in the Welsh Marches and the project started in 1990. We were living in a house which had become too large for us so we searched around for somewhere smaller but not too small. We came upon an oak framed, T-shaped barn with another small barn to the east of it. The old farmhouse had been demolished some years earlier. These buildings stood on a perfect site with views in all directions and were located near the centre of about 46 acres of pasture and woodland. It was decided that the T-shaped barn should be dismantled and reconstructed but the small barn was to be renovated in situ.
