Devon practice New British Design completes farmhouse extension


Quite a lot of different materials used externally for the size of the building, but overall a good effort and all credit to the local planners for supporting it. But is it really a good idea to have used horizontal timber - even larch - boarding for the roof over the balcony, in this climate? It would be a shame if this type of architecture became discredited for inappropriate use of materials that resulted in problems of appearance and maintenance.
