Gorey Methodist Church

Gorey Methodist Church

The chapel conversion is in Gorey Village, Jersey, and is a former Methodist Chapel that was long disused.  It is located in a quiet coastal village street in an outlying parish of Jersey.

The interior has been sectioned off into smaller spaces with a covered ceiling at eaves' level. This was completely stripped out leaving only the trusses and roof in position. 

We then built a four bedroom house in about two thirds of the building leaving a full height atrium at one end. This rises to fourteen metres at its apex.

The house within a church is a highly insulated eco-friendly high specification dwelling.

The budget had to be below a £1,000,000 build cost as this was the client cash limit.  It was commissioned by a builder/developer. It has sold with a month of being completed.

Planning approval was gained on 1st April 2008, with the whole project completed in October 2009.
