Renovating and restoring the farmhouse.
The Old Farmhouse, Crebor, nr Tavistock
We were commissioned to renovate and refurbish the farmhouse, which was in a dilapidated condition and in a
serious state of structural decay. The initial brief was to gain planning permission for the house and barn, the
former of which was frustrated by the fact that the house had not been lived in for some twenty years. The
refurbishment of the old farmhouse involved the reconstruction of much of its original structure, including the
entire roof, and much of the walling and the replacement of its earthen floor and upper floors. The interior has
retained much of its unique character by being kept very simplistic. A high quality of design and the retention of
many intrinsic features have created an innovative solution.
