01.Chartered Architectural Design
Barn conversions are a beautiful thing when done right, they come with all types of issues such as damp, structural issues and even protected species nesting in the attic! However, they are architecturally one of the most pleasant projects to do, complimenting the never-ending housing issue in the countryside.
Priest Architecture in Birmingham has carried out many barn conversions in Birmingham and throughout the West Midlands.
Did you know that barns are some of the oldest buildings in the UK? Barn conversions are not only aesthetically pleasing but also very practical. They offer ample space, which is ideal for families with children, and the house itself can be extended to create a big, open plan living area with characteristic windows and doors, or large glazed panels to see that gorgeous view.

We design barn conversions to complement the existing structure, for example keeping oak trusses where possible and maintaining high ceilings. We can also incorporate modern facilities like underfloor heating and double glazing, giving the house a rustic charm while still being energy efficient. You would be surprised at how thermally efficient a once ram-shackle barn can be with the appropriate materials used throughout the construction.
We can help you navigate through the applications of planning permission for your barn conversion and gain building regulations approval, the whole process may take time, but we are here to hold your hand and make sure that it goes smoothly.
