‘I was greatly helped by an imaginative builder and was able to considerably influence the design as the property was purchased before development started.
‘We were able to keep the steel frame but in all other respects it was a new build, the barn itself being completed in about August 2018.
‘Probably the most unique feature is the conversion of the two silos into living accommodation.
‘To the best of my knowledge this was a first and allowed us to create some additional living space, turning a more standard 4 bedroomed barn into something more individual and offering a variety of possible uses of the significant extra space. The silos were completed one year ago. ‘
