Timber Frame Barn Conversion Cirencester
Converting an existing disused barn isn’t as daunting as you might think. Changes to legislation have made barn conversions easier to build with a speedier planning process (Class Q Permitted Development Rights). We have discussed this process on our page Conversions of Barns and Agricultural Change of Use.
In 2021 self-builders approached Vision with plans to incorporate a new timber frame structure within the original steel barn beams to create a modern 5 bedroom home with stunning views over the Gloucestershire countryside.
Prefabricated roof trusses created the new roof structure.
Insulated timber frame structural panels with structural openings for windows and doors incorporated in our factory.
The versatility of timber frame provides more design freedom than you might expect! Fully engineered timber frame structures offer designers a chance to create new homes that can easily reach required U Values without compromising internal room space with their slender wall thickness.
Vision have constructed a range of different styles and designs using our timber frame systems. From bungalow conversions to prefab flat pack homes and self build homes that are manufactured to suit your specific designs.
There are a range of external finishes available to use with our timber frame systems and with this particular project in Cirencester, the customers opted for a natural Cotswold Stone and timber cladding to blend in nicely with the surroundings.

Vision worked with the customer to provide labour for installing the new windows and doors, roof tiling and stonework. All the materials were sourced by the customer.
Vision are happy to work with our customers to provide a tailored service to each project. If required we can offer a weathered shell finish which will include groundworks, roof finishes, external windows and doors and cladding, render or brickwork.
Here are some examples of timber frame projects we’ve undertaken with a range of external finishes.
