The Mayfield house consists of the main house and an outbuilding which comprises this project. The main move behind the outbuilding project is to bring it up to residential standards as when the house was bought it was only partially inhabitable. This will include over-cladding and completing the external envelope to a highly sustainable standard; adding new windows to the North and West facades and an additional rooflight for the mezzanine study area and replacing some of the fixed rooflights with openable ones. An new outdoor deck will be created at the same level as the internal floor finish. A ground source heating system will provide sustainable heating for the barn and the main house.
Planning permission for alterations to the outbuilding within the High Weald AONB was granted by Wealden District Council in April 2020
