Farm transformation into family home
When Mr and Mrs Withecombe purchased Swanmoor Farm their aim was to transform it into a comfortable family home. Central to this was a need to find more space without really increasing the building footprint. Our solution was to rearrange the interior, build over an existing lean-to extension to the rear and convert the loft space.
The latter aspect alone has added 900sq.ft. of floorspace, something which we cunningly achieved by replacing part of the roof structure with structural steelwork to open up the attic area. Viewed from the outside however, the house still reads as a two storey dwelling. A comprehensive range of related improvement works have given the property a real sense of character, befitting its elevated rural setting.
