Field Of Dreams

The barn which originally stood on the plot

Posted Date: 30th Dec 2011

Work is well underway in this building project so here we present a short story board of the build so far.  The site presents many challenges, but the breath-taking views make it clear why this will be such a special home.

This barn was originally situated on the site and was demolished and cleared ready for Quest's arrival.  The ground was then test-drilled to ascertain the depth and type of foundations required.  This project called for Continous Flight Augered Piled foundations


UPDATE: Work here is now completed!! Photographs of the finished home are now at the end of this story board . Feel free to get in touch and let us know your comments and questions.
