Maximising Light In Your Property Renovation

So, you've bought a renovation (or let's be honest - a wreck!) and you have grand ideas of how to turn this beautiful pile of rubble into the property of your dreams. Some building work, perhaps roof repairs, DPM improvements, maybe underpinning (for particularly badly damaged properties) and then of course the myriad of interior updates and remodelling to perform - but what about light design? We're not talking lightbulbs and lampshades, but more about the amount of actual light let into the property. It's simple to replace windows with like for like or reclaimed products for period property, but what about additional windows:

  • How many?
  • How big?
  • Where to put them?
  • What types?

Unusual Events At A Unique Property..

The UK is full of weird and wonderful properties both residential dwellings and commercial premises. From Windmill HQ's to converted barns for offices, the creativity of the business world never ceases to amaze. The agricultural space has always been diverse with some incredible architecture ranging from Welsh Longhouses (dwelling and cowhouse in one construction) to Scottish Crofts (often a dwelling for the tenant of arable land). 

Nestled in the heart of some stunning countryside in the Warwickshire, is just one of those places. Mythe Barn is a converted barn on Mythe Farm, a once working farm covering approximately 150 acres. It has been beautifully refurbished with the help of a European grant to now provide an ideal place for weddings, functions, product launches and corporate events.
