This timber also provides the beauty of natural wood for staircases, beams, interior doors, window frames and other visible surfaces.

Then she discovered Barratt’s pioneering iPad apartments at Farrier’s Park, Stockton.
“I loved the iPad design and the fact that everything was finished to a really high specification, which was lacking in other properties I considered,” said Joanne.”
Barratt has developed the new Barratt iPad Home, specifically to be more affordable for increasing numbers of first-time buyers around the UK, struggling to achieve their first step on the home ownership ladder.
