Building with Natural Stone

At Astrum, one of the elements of construction that we specialise in is natural stone. Whether we are building a brand new home with natural stone, or building a stone extension on an existing property, using this material has many benefits. Natural stone is a durable, high-quality material. It is also visually appealing. Stone construction lends itself perfectly to landscapes of rural locations.

Natural stone is a sustainable building material. There are a couple of different ways we can source natural stone - we can extract it from a local quarry, or we can reclaim it from buildings that have been demolished nearby. Both of these options are far more ecological than the processes used to create standard building bricks.

Natural stone is:

  • Highly durable
  • Low maintenance
  • Versatile
  • Comes in many shapes and sizes
  • Retains thermal mass

Benefits of building with natural stone:

  • Long life cycle
  • Resistance
  • Recyclability
  • Attractiveness
  • Comes in an abundance of colours
  • Easy to maintain

We pride ourselves on our quality of workmanship. A large quantity of our work is made up of large extensions and renovations of period properties. We feel that natural stone gives an aura of timelessness, and the feel that the stone extension or new build has always been there.

Do you feel that a natural stone extension would fit perfectly with your property? We carry out beautiful and unique stone construction projects across Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. Contact us today to see how we can help you.

A large benefit of working with stone is its durability. It is water, fire, and wind-resistant. It does not go mouldy and it is not prone to termites.

In addition, choosing stone for your house or extension can improve the temperature regulation of your home. Buildings made from materials with high thermal mass - such as stone - feel cooler during hot days and warmer during cold nights. This is because stone has the ability to take in and release heat slower than other materials such as timber.

At Astrum we hold a wealth of experience in understanding all the planning conditions and constraints involved in the construction of barn conversions. We can assist with the whole construction process from planning & approval of your conversion and design right down to lighting controls and smart home solutions.

The positive of converting existing barn buildings is that they, like new builds, are largely exempt from VAT, which you are currently able to reclaim via HMRC Notice 431C. Also, the strict planning constraints involved in the building of new dwellings in the Countryside are timely and expensive to overcome. Recent changes in planning ‘Permitted Development (PD) rights introduced in early April 2014 have transformed the landscape for anyone wishing to undertake a barn conversion in England (not applicable to the rest of the United Kingdom as it currently stands).

Barn conversions are the perfect build for those wishing to embrace original design features and character while utilising living space. The beauty of a barn conversion is that they allow for generous room proportions and high ceilings.
