Barn Conversion Update

clip_image004_thumb.jpgWell what a week! We have had a virtual heat wave and then constant downpours; it seems like the UK weather doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going!


To cheer myself up and try and rid myself of this dreary weather I am getting a new mountain bike – details to be revealed at a later date….


Back to business, then. Specifically, an update on the barn conversion that we have been working on and writing about.


The drawings that we bought you in our previous barn blog are now at the structural engineers and calculations are also being done. A trial hole is being dug so that we can prepare designs for the foundation slab, too.


We handle all the design and build for our clients and – where necessary – we employ external, professional (and insured!) consultants, like engineers for example.


At this exciting point in the project, I am really looking forward to getting the barn build underway and incorporating some really cool, contemporary features to make the building totally unique.


After all, that’s what we do best.


I will bring you more details when I have them – in the meantime, have a great week and try to make the most of the great British summertime weather!

Transforming Interior Space

We are currently working on a project in a beautiful Shropshire Country House.


The brief was for us to transform two existing rooms and also to add in a luxury en-suite bathroom. We are working on two 2 exclusive suites in that will also have potential rental opportunities.


The features that we are including as part of this project are:blog pic 2

▪ New dormer (to create en-suite)
▪ Bespoke oak furniture and fittings
▪ Sliding glass hidden doors
▪ Stunning views onto open countryside


I don’t know about you, but I think definite rental potential is more likely – there is nothing better than waking up to views of the rolling Shropshire hills and open fields.

Especially, of course, when it is Sunny like it has been this week – it has been a pleasure to work on this job in such a lovely part of the world.

It’s been an exciting time lately at Louka Fine Finish; we have a lot of projects on the go and the Barn Conversion that I told you about at the start of the month is now at design drawing stage.

Although I obviously can’t be too specific, my clients have agreed that I can share some of the drawings we have prepared for the project to give you an idea of what we are building.

As you can see, the drawings give the client a real feel for their project – this is always something that we make sure we do when taking on any new build or renovation. We work with people to realise their vision – in short, we design AND build.

I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject so feel free to chat to me on @loukafinefinish about any project that you have in mind.


In the meantime, have a great week and I look forward to bringing you my next update!
