    Default Ochre barn in Norfolk, England



    Ochre Barn is a multi purpose development: it houses a retreat, studio space and private residential accommodation for architect Carl Turner and his partner Mary Martin.



    When renovating the barn the original exterior was maintained as if it were a listed historical structure and the interior has been lined with particular attention given to highlight and expose the original bull nose brick details.



    Next to Ochre Barn, a new barn (the black one) was built. It only cost about $48,000 to build, which was incredibly cheap,” says Turner. “We got the Timber Frame Company to supply the shell, then we clad it and fitted out the interior and windows ourselves.

    Gosh, I wonder why. Possibly because the place is thrown together with particle board?

    I hope these people get what their house is really built out of and not under the impression that this shit is solid.

    I'm ashamed to say, this barn is in my 'neck of the woods'. Ugly looking thing - don't like it at all. The barn a little further down my road is much nicer looking.

    Do they think that lovely chipboard crap is "natural" or something? The stuff's loaded with formaldehyde resins, it doesn't all stick together because of fairy dust. Their entire home is going to be off-gassing for years. #hippiefail

    The only redeeming quality is the exposed brick wall.
