Cedar Barn Project

Cedar Barn is a 5000sq new home under planning policy D1 is a prototype which has proved a Code Level 6 build can be achieved in an aesthetically traditional property, losing the “Wacky” image.
Richard has been refining the design and working on further cost savings during the build process reducing the future overall build price preparing a module format to be applied to a multi house development.
