A quick post to link a few things of my dogs together

A new house

Another rare work post on here. This is a new house and campsite office project I have been working on for a very long time. Planning was a bit of a long process on this one but we got there in the end.

The house is on a basic campsite that retains its rustic farm appeal so we didn’t want to plonk a modern house there, it had to be something rustic. With this in mind we set about designing a house that would look a bit like a converted Linhay. Materials and detailing were very important, the darker timber principle structure is Oak and we were lucky to source some great Cedar for the cladding, the roof is natural slate and the rendered gable walls are done in a through coloured self finished render. Although the gables are done in cavity block construction we cut the corners down to give the building soft rounded hand formed edges.




The project was Project Managed by Mark Freeman of Porlock. I can’t recommend Mark highly enough contact Mark on 07773 149298 if you are planning a building project on Exmoor. He provides a very cost effective alternate service to the traditional contractor.

If you are Planning a camping holiday on Exmoor Sparkhayes campsite is ideally located in Porlock. It is run by one of Exmoors true gentlemen Mr Philip Weaver who will definitely add value to your stay with his knowledge and enthusiasm for all things Exmoor. Contact details for the site are here –
