This kitchen was designed for a very old and quaint converted barn. The kitchen needed to span two areas situated partly in the original property, running to the newly built extension. Our client wanted an easy to maintain, long-lasting and spacious kitchen which we delivered using traditional building techniques and some clever design.
We used a mixture of materials, including aged pine and antique granite, along with our usual techniques such as dovetails, mortice butt hinges, mortice and tenons. We had a step in the walls and an RSJ and a nib to build into the design. The large oak beam gave us a convenient place to end the kitchen.
Our client kindly said: "Guy Cheeseman and his team at Dowers made a superb job of our farmhouse-style kitchen, which we are extremely pleased with. From planning, which Guy was mainly responsible for, through to completion was very straightforward and, despite working in a converted barn where there are no such things as exact right angles etc. those obstacles were overcome with the minimum of fuss. Inevitably with any new “build” there was the occasional “snagging” but once told about it, one of the team came out immediately to make it good. I would not hesitate to recommend Dowers to anyone."
