Castle Cary, Extension to Farmhouse

Geo. Masters & Sons, Ilchester recently completed the Garden Room for this fascinating mediaeval farmhouse which is listed grade II*. The design is complementarty to the modest scale of the existing building and yet provides ample space and a wonderful daylight while still meeting the high thermal insulation requirements of the building regulations. The core of the house is timber framed and so a framed style was adopted in the design, as well as the locally traditional materials of clay tile and leaded light glazing. The large areas of glass give an immediate connectedness to the garden.
