Great Chaddington

Private house near Swindon


A new green oak barn within the courtyard of a Grade 2 Listed thatched cottage and outbuildings. Detailed listed building consent was obtained.


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 recycled and used for the roof.


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.
