Ty Coch Barn
Client: Denbighshire County Council
Architect: Donald Insall Associates
Contractor: Chester Masonry
Restoration of a 14th century ‘cruck framed’ hall house adapted several times over its time and most recently used for agricultural purposes.
Denbigh County Council undertook to bring this important building back from the brink and to give it a new lease of life as rural offices.
A steady approach to the timber frame repairs enabled us to keep in place the majority of the structure thus retaining the undulating roof and walls intact. Below is a summary of our approach to this project.
Typical with most Historic Building Restorations the aims were:
- Repair and consolidate the existing structural fabric to ensure future stability and integrity.
- Minimise disruption to existing fabric during renovation. Reinstate and repair those elements identified as defective.
- Enhance structure only where agreed employing appropriate methods and materials.
