Barn conversion

In 2019 Andy and Sue Perrin set about converting an abandoned 230-year-old Devon stone barn. Using local craftspeople, they have lovingly restored it into a stunning holiday let. They knew they wanted an oak frame at the heart of the project and chose Carpenter Oak for our traditional handcrafting skills and expertise.

“As soon as we walked into Carpenter Oak’s huge workshops and saw the team of skilled carpenters investing heart and soul into carving every joint of these massive frames by hand, we knew we’d found the right partner,” say the couple.

It’s safe to say that the Perrins are happy with their frame and the final look of their barn. “We’ve been recommending Carpenter Oak to everyone who stays at the barn and asks, ‘who made that amazing oak frame?’,” they say.

“There’s no reason why Willowplatt Barn shouldn’t still be standing in another 230 years’ time, with people still loving what has been created here.”
