Ground source heating for off-grid barn conversion

A stunning contemporary barn conversion located off-grid in South Norfolk is benefitting from energy efficient ground source heating from renewable heating experts, Finn Geotherm.

The four bedroom barn conversion in Hethersett was designed and built by homeowner Oliver Clarke. The property used the original 1980s steel framed sheep barn as the base with the new house built inside. Planning regulations required the appearance of the barn to remain as original as possible so Oliver designed and built bespoke exterior wooden shutters to go over each window and door. A large glass wall and bi-fold doors in the main living area provide stunning views over the fields and surrounding countryside.
