Hertfordshire agricultural buildings development
We’ve used Dale on several projects across many years
“We are a small-scale developer that focusses on high quality projects – we have used Dale Joinery products for several projects across many years now.”

Windows & Doors
On farmland in rural Hertfordshire, a collection of disused agricultural buildings from an old dairy farm have been converted for residential use.
To date, a large barn has been turned into three residences, a 2-bedroom house, a 3-bedroom house and the largest, a 4-bedroom property.
“As a small-scale developer that focusses on high quality, conservation and heritage, and renovation projects, we have used Dale Joinery products on several projects across many years now.”
With further derelict buildings on the same site, the hope is to continue to gain permission to repurpose these also for residential use.
Throughout the development, window openings are generally sizeable, for light and impact, as well as carefully chosen windows to frame particular views across the nearby fields.
“We feel it is important to find the right windows and doors for a project such as this…timber, and in particular the Dale product range feels and fits right in this setting – many may have put in aluminium, but this would have jarred with the building.”
Creating a dramatic feature and allowing a flood of light into the hallway, this double height selection of entrance door and casement windows is the centrepiece of the 4-bedroom property. Complementing the barn aesthetic is a ‘Jet Black’ finish externally along with ‘Signal White’ internally. Understated 316 coastal grade Stainless Steel hardware completes the look.
Classically styled French doors in a matching finish to the entrance way, make the most of the views and maximise glazing area. A 316 coastal grade Stainless Steel ‘Nitro’ handle provides an attractive touchpoint for the doors.
Flush Casement Windows
A selection of flush casement windows in various formations feature throughout all the residences on this development, framing and opening up the views beyond. In contrast to the ‘Jet Black’ exterior finish, the ‘Signal White’ interior colour provides an easy backdrop for decoration, while a satin chrome Teardrop handle offers an elegant finishing touch.
