Black Millwork has supplied a series of energy efficient windows and doors for installation on a barn conversion property in Ryde, a town on the Isle of Wight.

Spanning 2,500 square feet, Lakefield Barn is a green oak framed, detached property, which previously served as a stable block. It boasts its own private lake, six acres of land and exposed vaulted ceilings.

The aim of the conversion was to preserve much of the barn’s original character, whilst refining its performance credentials for maximum internal comfort. To improve the thermal efficiency of the building, a total of 38 windows and doors from Black Millwork were specified for installation.

Black Millwork’s timber frame fenestration was specified to suit the internal and external aesthetics of the property.

27 oak Tilt/Turn and fixed unfinished windows, which have been designed to silver as they age, were fitted throughout the property. Whilst boasting a traditional style, the frames are able to achieve a U-value of 1.4 W/m2K.

11 oak French doors were also supplied unfinished to complement the windows and the building frame.
