Twins, Twice as Nice: Tailored Living

Twins, Twice as Nice: Tailored Living

Following a handful of detailed pre-start meetings with a lovely new client couple – who are converting the last remaining unconverted stone barn on a beautiful farmyard in Northwoods just outside of Winterbourne, Bristol – we have decided to future proof the first floor bedrooms.

Our clients have twin boys aged two. Both our clients and the boys want to share bedrooms now, but in the future they may not. It’s important to our clients that the boys remain close and we understand that completely.

We have decided to convert the barn and incorporate a very large room at first floor, which the boys will share. This room will have two doors entering the room side by side, two radiators and two lighting circuits. We will plan the internal partitions so that they are ready to take a non-load bearing structural stud partition, meaning that future division will be easy and seriously low cost. We are expecting a call during the next 5 years or so to come and erect the stud, as boys being boys they will one day want some privacy.

As do we all, our clients clearly love their children deeply and it is obvious that this is their main driver. It’s so nice to be a part of their journey and the thought of them all spending many happy years in the barn post completion makes my job, in my opinion, the best job in the world.
