Devil’s Pit farm is a detached farmhouse and is situated in the Blackdown Hills, an area of natural beauty, near Taunton.
The client, Sarah Jane Longbottom, had been experiencing problems with the existing upvc gutter – it had begun to fail and the joints had separated, which led to damp creeping into the building causing damage to the paintwork.
The prestigious early 1900’s five bedroom detached listed building was scheduled for a full refurbishment and extension to be carried out by local developer, Kent Building Developments. Due to the location, local planning conditions required careful consideration to be given to every aspect of the project to ensure the historic aesthetics of the building were not compromised.
Inside Out Lifestyle is a building company who specialise in making the best out of your home and customising your living space. A recent project was a property in need of a major refurbishment both inside and out. The brief was to create a contemporary style throughout the property. When it came to the external roofline and rainwater products Ian from Inside Out enlisted the help of ARP.
Following on from the main house refurbishment last year, the client was keen to convert the old barn into a garage and workshop. Plans for the rainwater system were submitted, and following a site visit to discuss the details of the project and establish the positioning of the downpipes, ARP submitted a quotation.
The project was to expansively extend and refurbish an existing property. The scheme was challenging and Specialised Fixings who called on the expertise of ARP to offer their skills and experience to overcome any design constraints whilst meeting both the design brief and the client expectations.
Rainwater Direct were working on a refurbishment project in Brampton Ash which included a modern barn conversion. ARP’s account manager Nigel Hancock visited the site to establish the requirements and noted that because there were two very different styles, the traditional main building and the modern barn conversion which had a glass wall and façade detail.
