Barn conversion

Use Plentific to compare quotes for the best local professionals to help you achieve your dream barn conversion. A barn can be converted to create your new home, a pool house or it could even be turned into separate living quarters for another generation of your family. Building restrictions and strict planning rules in certain parts of the countryside mean that barns are hugely popular as they offer property potential.

A barn conversion requires a number of local experts to get the job done. This would include an architect, structural engineer, plumber, electrician and decorator at the very least.

What do I need to think about when converting a barn?

Prior to selecting your local tradesmen, there are several planning points you must consider. First of all, consider what access there currently is to the property and whether or not you are going to need to build a means of entrance.

The gaping concern with making a barn your permanent home is its proximity to a working farm. It’s worth thinking about how your daily life could be and to what extent impacted by the sights, activities and smells of this. Think even more broadly in terms of location - a rural spot has its appeals, but how far are you from amenities?

Think about the cost of installing basic thing like utilities, heating and lighting. A barn’s original purpose is to house animals - not humans! Ahead of approaching the project, ascertain everything the barn would need - to your knowledge - in order for the property to be livable. There will be additional cost to heating a barn compared to a traditional home property due to the large, open plan design. Think about what kind of heating you would be interested in - there are options such as solar panels as well as underfloor heating.

Further food for thought is the lighting situation - planners can insist on the continued use of the existing doorways - think about how you would get around this and whether you would be prepared to foot the cost and maintenance of artificial lighting.

What does converting a barn do?

Barn conversions produce stunning properties with unique, original features. The unusual marriage of industrial features such as beams, vaulted ceilings and peg work with carpets and interior fittings is incredibly striking.

By converting and then living in a barn, the owners are getting the opportunity to live in rural England where they are surrounding by picturesque countryside. Barn living would offer a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city or even town life.

How much does converting a barn cost?

The price range of a barn conversion is too wide to specify as the sheer scale of difference from barn to barn in size and materials means that it’s a case-by-case discussion. Use Plentific to explore your options and compare quotes from the best local professionals.
