How Much Does a Barn Conversion Cost?


Living in a barn, rather than a home can be a much more interesting way of spending your days. The spacious and open plan area, coupled with the traditionally nature-orientated location for most barns is certainly appealing to most. However, a barn conversion is noticeably more expensive than a new build. On average, a barn conversion will cost you around £275,000. Whereas a new build is closer to £200,000 for a 3-bed home. Furthermore, requiring planning permission to convert a barn into a place of residence is usually rare, however it can certainly be difficult if it is needed. However, at Happinest, obtaining planning permission has never been easier.

When Will I Need Planning Permission for a Barn Conversion?

The conversion of an agricultural building does not usually require planning permission. However, if it is of such special nature that the barn conversion has been classed as a rebuild, then permission is needed. In short, the larger the build is and the more additions/modifications made will mean it is more likely for the barn conversion to require planning permission from the council.

How Do I Get Planning Permission?

Planning Permission can be quite difficult to acquire. In some scenarios, it can take up to 13 weeks for permission to be granted. Therefore, by allowing Happinest to assist you in your barn conversion, the stress factor can be relieved as Happinest can organise planning permission for you, as part of their services.
