Bespoke joinery work, handmade from European oak, provides the finishing touch to this beautiful Stadhampton barn conversion.
The dogs (two gorgeous red setters) are key residents at this property. They definitely consider the garden their own and access to it is of paramount importance! The main five-panel door system is designed in two parts. A single passage door combined with a four paneled bi-fold, allowing ease of access as well as full screen opening.
The non-canine residents specified a grand oversized entrance door, flanked by high specification fixed glazed panels. The framed, ledged and braced door has vertical boarding to the external face, accentuating its breadth and the wide oak frame surround. The supporting oak corner pillar and staddle stone base exhibits copper junction detail.
The supporting porch structure of air-dried oak was designed to match the original gable overhang and built using traditional pegged mortice and tenon joints. The main door set is complemented by the matching egress window above. The two story extension to the original barn conversion was built by sister company StuartBarrCDR.
Both canine and non-canine residents are delighted with the finished results and are already planning further alterations and bespoke joinery work to enhance their home. A bespoke dog house maybe?... to put those pesky humans into when they get a bit too lively!
