The existing byre was converted and improved for holiday lettings. Part of a phase development, this conversion forms one side of a proposed courtyard of holiday-let buildings. It was decided to externally insulate and clad the building in larch – to save space internally and to reveal the internal stonework of the old byre.

The living area, where the original stone walls of the byre have been lime-rendered, is illuminated by concealed lighting in the roof-space. Heating is provided by a ground source heat pump. This 2-bed holiday let has two boreholes – for the heatpump, and for the household water source. A new-build is scheduled to start onsite in September 2007, at the end of the letting season.
