Case Study: Cruckbarn
Never has there been a time (or a year), when we’ve wanted (make that needed) to hunker down and escape the world. And, whilst we may all dream of having a rural rustic retreat to escape to, very few of us are lucky enough to know of such a dwelling, let alone have it available to us. Well, that’s about to change…Meet CRUCKBARN!
The ultimate hideaway from the world. CRUCKBARN is a picture-perfect cabin with stunning views across the rolling English countryside. Its charming exterior is Grand Designs meets Little House on the Prairie, whilst the oak frame interior doesn’t disappoint either.
Joiners, builders, and, in fact, all craftsmen will be inspired by the build. Oak taken from the surrounding woodland to craft the CRUCKBARN make it an impressive self-build and a feature of the landscape in its own right.
How then, may you ask do you finish such a unique dwelling? Using British-designed and made ironmongery that’s as authentic as the property itself, sympathetic to its surroundings, and durable enough to stand the test of time.
Whilst CRUCKBARN may not have been around for 100 years, it certainly looks as though it has. And, by using the finest hand-crafted and authentic architectural hardware, there’s no reason why it won’t leave its own legacy for years to come.
Down to the details…Whilst the entrance to CRUCKBARN may be understated, here at Yorkshire Architectural Hardware, we’re big believers in making first impressions count and, in this case, it’s the reliably rustic Mortice Door Knob and T-Hinges that make for a warm and inviting welcome. Meanwhile, the Peardrop ironmongery details give the windows an effortlessly elegant finish.
Throughout the property, the door and window furniture is finished in black, and for good reason. It is as durable as it is delightful and though it may be inherently timeless, it reminds us of a bygone era. Perfect for allowing us to step back-in-time and seemingly leave the chaotic 21st century behind us.
