Metsa Wood: Windmill Conversion Project
Professional Builder reports on a stunning windmill conversion using Kerto LVL Engineered Timber Solutions for Roof Systems.
Cockfield Windmill, situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, was a former windmill structure recently converted to accommodation for holiday lets. Before it was converted, the structure was just a mill stump constructed of brick with a traditional tar coating which no longer had its sails or cap.
Beech Architects were the architects involved in this interesting, yet challenging project, where the client wanted a new cap based on the traditional ‘inverted boat’ form, exploiting the stunning views over the Suffolk countryside.
