Case Study 1 - Lapstone Barn

Stud partition walling MickletonLapstone Barn was built in the 18th century and was part of a working farm  on the Northwick Estate for two centuries. In the late 19th century a joinery company used it as a furniture workshop and the building was later converted around 2009 into a retail outlet and Spa simply known as Lapstone.

In 2017 our company converted the historic listed barn into a Wedding Venue, the new business was launched in December 2017 and is now successfully up and running.

   Demolition phase

Stud partition walling MickletonPermission was granted to remove the 1st floor mezzanine and stairs element of the barn and create a staircase at the opposite end of the building in order to access a redesigned and refurbished first floor area.

A large pine beam supporting the existing mezzanine had to be carefully removed along with the mezzanine floor. The remaining pockets in the stonework were infilled with stone reclaimed from the formation of an opening at the other end of the building and the whole area was made good and re-pointed with hydraulic lime sand mortar.

 The doorway through to the existing first floor was re-fashioned to create a recessed feature.

Construction phase

A new commercial kitchen was created in an area of the barn previously used as a restaurant. This new space was designed to accommodate a fully fitted out commercial kitchen with 3 phase electrical supply and  interlocked LPG gas system.

A number of rooms in the barn building were reconfigured, demolishing walls where necessary and reconstructing new to create more interactive and usable spaces.

A new staircase was constructed to gain access to the resigned first floor area now consisting of 'The Hay Loft' bridal area, 'Dressing Room' and office space

New internal and external doors and frames were supplied and fitted by our joiners and a bar was constructed to fit in with the carefully crafted design specification supplied by the clients.

Third party contractors fitted a new timber floor to the Ceremony, Dining and Snug rooms along with new male and female WC installations. Large vanity and other mirrors were supplied and fixed and commercial vinyl flooring was fitted to the kitchen areas.

Interior and exterior decorations were carried out throughout the building to complete the brief.
