Turnstone House is looking forward to accommodating additional young people following the conversion of an old stable block on site.
The project started slowly due to the discovery of bats living in the roof space, but once we had been given the go-ahead by Natural England, work could resume on converting the space, which had previously been used as a workshop and storage.
After several months of activity (mainly in scorching temperatures) the builders completed the work and have very successfully converted the space into a large living/kitchen area with enough en-suite bedrooms to accommodate staff and young people. An additional multi-purpose room with a kitchenette has been installed, which can be used to help young people transition to independent living.
We have a few finishing touches to add, but are looking forward to settling young people into this very smart building in the near future.
