In every way that matters Lisa and Nathan Langtry’s project in Co Armagh is a prime example of how to tackle a new build project; they had a clear vision of what they wanted and enlisted the expertise of others to produce a family home suited to their exact needs.
“We originally lived in a townhouse with a family of five and we were cramped, we knew it was time to move on,” explains Lisa. “We got some land from my dad and went from there.” “Architectural designer Glyn is a friend of ours and we spoke to him about building new, he showed us a few options. We consulted plans and magazines and came to the conclusion that we really wanted to build a barn type dwelling with a modern extension.”

“The builder did everything – we just went to pick out the windows, the kitchen and bathroom including tiles and he then sorted out delivery and payment with those companies directly.”
Building with stone also meant we needed large cement heads for the window openings and we have an arched window and that required a customised lintel, which was expertly manufactured by Craftstone and as soon as it was onsite the building went up very quickly.”
