A Timberworks English Barn in Appleby

A Timberworks English Barn in Appleby

This Timberworks English barn overlooks the Waimea Estuary just along the coast from Nelson.  The clients wanted to create an English style barn with two bedrooms and en-suites that could be used for accommodation for themselves initially and then for guests in the future. The Timberworks pre-designed 6.2m wide frame suited the design brief and the bandsawn post and beam frame was exposed externally on the North side of the building to add another dimension to that elevation; whereas the  frame on the remaining three sides of the building was visible from the interior which is how the barns are generally finished.  The clients chose to line the ceilings in tongue and groove plywood to continue the timber theme and create a warm, traditional feel.  Timberworks supplied a full design, build and project management package for these clients, though we no longer offer a full-build option.
