Farmhouse extesion completed – Montone, Umbria

This extension was completed some time ago but only now I have some great pictures to share. We have added a new wing (50sqm on two floors) to an old farmhouse to include a large new living room, another bedroom and two bathrooms, of which one is en-suite, and an arched portico. The substructure is in reinforced concrete but all visible structure is traditional (timber ceilings, stone facing walls, chestnut windows, etc). This new wing is also the new entrance to the house.

Farmhouse restoration near Perugia, Umbria

This is a challenging restoration that I have just started, we are on the very top of a panoramic hill not far from Perugia, with extensive views over the Tiber Valley. There are two old farmhouses, next to each other, in need of heavy restoration, as the roofs have collapsed and some walls are crumbling down. The plan is to rebuild the roofs and floor in the traditional style, with chestnut beams and joists and terracotta pianelle, as well as carrying out seismic reinforcement with concrete and steel ring beams. So, firstly, we secure the shell, then we move on to the interior. Another farmhouse restoration in Umbria by architect Marco Carlini.
