Great Chaddington

Private house near Swindon

Background
A new ‘green oak’ barn within the courtyard of a grade 2 listed thatched cottage and outbuildings.
Design
We obtained detailed listed building consent, and continued a dialogue with the local officer during the course of the project. The oak framing was undertaken by Carpenter Oak & Woodland. The exterior of the building has been clad in horizontal oak boarding, with oak windows, doors and staircases. Reclaimed clay tiles were used for the roof.
Technical
The house has underfloor heating throughout, together with high specification glass, and insulation to the walls, floor and roof. The house was built above the local flood level. Extensive consultation was undertaken with the Environment Agency to agree the method of sewage treatment and discharge into the local brook.

Built by Wilkins of Calne.
