Barn Conversion – The Great Barn – Ashton, Exeter, South Devon

Historic Building Restoration and Medieval Barn Conversion

The Great Barn conversion and historic building restoration started in 2003 and took a little over twelve months to complete. With the vision and imagination of the client and their architects, Marmot Associates, this 15th Century barn has been transformed from a semi derelict shell into a living, breathing building of great beauty.

Artisan Projects, along with the green oak framers, were contracted to carry out the architectural joinery and carpentry to the medieval barn itself and the renovation and refurbishment of the service buildings adjacent, including the 16th Century Round-House and the Courtyard Cottage.

We are proud to have contributed to the success of this historic building restoration and conservation project, and to have helped enable this spectacular Devon barn conversion – known as the ‘Thatched Cathedral’ – to emerge as an award winning testament to all the tradesmen carpenters and joiners who worked there.
