Imelda and Matt

SL05

INSPIRATION

Imelda’s parents bought the old parochial house, next door, in the mid 70’s and she & her siblings grew up playing in The Outhouses. It is a former stables used by priests to house horses, cart, cows and store hay in the loft.

In 2005 Imelda and Matt secured the architect Colin Bell to assist with this self-build project and moved home from Wales to start the work.  Matt spent three years renovating and bringing  back to life this old outbuilding, making it into the family home it is now. 

By using exterior insulation the olden day interiror walls remain the same.  With sustainability in mind they have upcycled  and recycled as much as they could- not least the building itself! 

A video documenting the build can be seen on www.mattjoneswoodturner.com
