Rehabilitation of an old farmhouse removed into a vacation studio.

Rouviere Construction had already done structural work for this house a few years ago. Customers have decided now to adapt finishing works of this old farmhouse. The aim is to convert it into a confortable place of vacation to receive family.

Works into various rooms of the old farmhouse

Rouviere Construction has done the works as a general contractor.

First of all Rouviere company has realised the heat insulation and created apertures. The window and main door frames in natural stones have been restored.

For downstairs floor, including the kitchen and the living-room, the customers’ desire was to get a old stone aspect floor easy to maintain and clean. The choice fell on Rouviere Collection’s pavement, model Authentique. It is a pavement that indeed associates aspect of natural old stones together with resistance and easy maintenance of cement. This pavement has been manufactured in color “Ocré” to remind color of natural stones from Gard. The pavement Authentique however exists in 8 other colors.

The stairs has also been created with massive steps done on demand. Rouviere made them in the same design and aspect than the floor pavement.

In the first place the kitchen top has been made in a concrete structure with customized dimensions. It has then been plastered together with the splashback with Rouviere Collection micro-concrete.

A mezzanine has been built upstairs including a TV room and a bedroom. The floor of both rooms is also plastered with micro-concrete in a grey color. In the bedroom a special customized has been thought and realized. At least there is a bathroom with a walk-in shower and a customized to basins set. Bathroom floor, walls and basins set are in a white colored micro-concrete plaster.  The walk-in shower wall is built with transparent glassblocks.
