The School House

The School House
This former school has been extended and the interior rationalised to create a more spacious and coherent layout. Windows are a particular feature of this project allowing stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The addition of a biomass boiler, PV panels, water filtration system and pump to supply water from their own private well along with thermal upgrades to the building envelope make this a particularly interesting project in terms of self sufficiency.

The Scottish larch clad extension provides a spacious new entrance hall, utility, mud room and houses the biomass boiler. A sun room extension off the kitchen catches the midday sun and has created additional living space with access to the garden.The house has been refurbished with future living requirements in mind with a flexible arrangement on the ground floor providing a home for life. The main living space is open plan and flows off the kitchen creating a large sociable space with views across the fields on both sides.
