Low-Energy Barn Conversion
Heath Walker Studio
This is a live/work project comprising of a large double height artist’s studio and four bedroom house. It was approved within Class Q of permitted development requiring retention of the original portal frame. It is now a high spec family house with large number of rooflights giving plenty of natural light within. It features a ground source heat pump and gets electricity from a solar farm elswhere on the property.
After 5 years of living here we are moving to the country and it breaks my heart to leave the beautiful house that you created for us. I wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful work that you did on our building - it’s been amazing to live in and you guys did a first class job. Would always recommend you if someone asked for an excellent contractor.

“Bow Tie Construction were very professional, they did things to a very high standard and paid a lot of attention to detail. When small issues were flagged here or there they were always keen to investigate and fix them.”

“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”

Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly....Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.
