A detached barn for sale with planning permission for conversion to a 4 bedroom residential dwelling. As you can imagine with a listing such as this, the information is limited. All that is mentioned is that ‘Castle Barn is situated on the south-east corner of the site’ and is a ‘building built of a soft Norfolk red brick under a clay pantile roof. It has a gross internal area of 277 sq m (2988 sq ft) and has planning permission.’

Some information can be found on the property listing here and further information will more than likely be available on request. It is on the market for Offers in the region of £200,000.

Inspiration: Garage Conversion – The Shed Residence

The Shed Residence by Richard Peters Associates.

This tiny garage in Sydney, Australia has operated as a motorcycle repair shop, secondhand washing machine warehouse, a builder’s workshop, and most recently a studio for local artists. Its most recent incarnation is the conversion into a two bedroom, two batroom home.

Tucked away at the end of a lane in the Sydney suburb of Randwick, close to The Spot and in walking distance to Coogee beach, is this 74 sqm simple brick industrial structure built in 1890 by two Irish blacksmiths to house their coach building business.

Having grown up in the area, the owners knew the building well and when it came up for sale in 2003, took a leap of faith and invested in a project that presented an exciting opportunity. They decided to convert it into a smaller, sustainable and more efficient way to live, while challenging the convention that ʻbigger is betterʼ.

The building has a north-facing roof that has been set up with solar panels to harness the sun, there are operable doors and windows from north to south to allow good cross ventilation so there is no need for air conditioning, while the thermal mass of the concrete floor holds the winter sun to warm the building in the colder months. Along the southern wall a full bank of storage on ground level and on the first level has been installed as an effective insulator from the adjoining passage.
