When undertaking barn conversions, there are many elements to consider. This begins at the design stage, when we take the time with each customer to find out exactly what you want from your project.

Before work begins, it’s vital to make sure you have necessary approval. This prevents delays, extra costs and issues with local authorities. Some projects fall under permitted development, but our builders advise on requirements and submit applications for you.

The following are some of the key aspects of our barn conversions in Penrith and the surrounding areas.

To get the most from your new space, a practical layout is key. Depending on how you’ll use your conversion, we construct interior walls, staircases and floors to suit your needs.

Because barns are often long and narrow, a central hallway is a common solution for access and circulation. Barns also regularly have double-height spaces which are perfect or galleried landings and feature entrances.

An effective layout is essential for ensuring barn conversions meet individual needs. Committed to giving every customer the most from their homes, our builders also provide layout alterations for house renovations.

Light & Windows

A key consideration of conversions in Penrith is making use of natural light. Lack of light is a common problem when working on barns, but our builders provide ideal solutions, such as:

• Open plan spaces
• Installing full-height glazing in cart openings
• Glazing gable ends
• Ridge glazing

Roofing & Insulation

Roofing and insulation are vital to ensuring barn conversions are warm, comfortable and weatherproof. We fit high-quality insulation to the internal face of brick and stone walls. This preserves the outside appearance, greatly improves heat retention and reduces household bills.

Our builders also ensure roofs are properly insulated as well as watertight. We repair and replace roofing materials for a reliable finish that maintains the appearance of your building.

L J Renvoize Building delivers all other aspects of barn conversions, including flooring, joinery and plumbing. All designs are individually tailored for the best possible results.
