20/03/2017 Windows go in at Greyfell

The windows are now in at Greyfell! (formerly Old Lodge Barn).  The earlier design time spent positioning windows has really paid off now that the framed views across the countryside have been realised. Externally, the well crafted (and almost complete) zinc-work frames the windows beautifully. 

Internally, a couple of the trusses in the main barn space have been cleverly adapted and strengthened with steel to maximise head height on the linking bridge to the master bedroom. By removing a section of the bottom chord this adds visual interest to the rhythm of the trusses running through the space.
