Nightingale Joinery are skilled at a wide variety of installations including barn conversions. A local customer wanted to renovate their barn to create a brand new living space that could be used for whatever they needed. We’re dedicated to providing our customers with unique and bespoke installations that stand out from the crowd. This is so that you can get your perfect grand design.
This project was local to our workshop and involved converting a timber-framed barn into a family home in the heart of the Essex countryside.
The first phase in the barn conversion called for designing, manufacturing, and installing a traditional staircase. In detail, it included a cut string with decorative brackets and a scotia moulding on the underside of the tread. It also included a continuous oak handrail with wreathed transitions that run up the stairs and either side of a gallery landing. Square balusters, handrail volute and volute newel, completed this understated staircase. The client finished the staircase by hand painting with white eggshell paint and polishing the handrail with wax achieving a very tactile finish.
The client had two mezzanine floors incorporated into the barn conversion. The design allowed full uninterrupted views of the stunning original roof timbers. To maintain the clear view whilst making the floor areas safe to use we installed glass balustrade on stainless standoffs around the mezzanine floor, the glass offered the guarding required whilst maintaining a clear view of the stunning roof timbers. Access to the mezzanine floors was gained via a pull-out oak ladders that we manufactured and installed.
The second phase of the project involved the manufacture of two oak sliding doors. We manufactured the doors using European Kilned dried Oak the design was traditional Framed, ledged and braced. They were hung using a traditional black iron sliding system. This all provided a completely authentic look.
To complete our contract, we installed Oak skirting detail, and a capping scribed into the walls. This covered the newly built low-level brickwork which was part of the underpinning that supported the original Oak wall plate.
