Amazing Transformation: From Chicken Coop to Luxury Holiday Home

A run-down chicken coop which was transformed into a modern four-bedroom holiday home has been nominated for an architecture prize.While most of us would turn our nose up at the rundown, abandoned hen house in Monmouthshire, UK, architect Martin Hall decided to take it on and create something rather beautiful indeed.

The old chicken coop was given a state-of-the-art £275,000 makeover, transforming it into a luxury  bungalow. Martin Hall saw the cracking potential of the egg-laying shed, due to the stunning views of the Black Mountains on the Welsh border. This renovation project is now up for the gold medal for architecture at the National Eisteddfod.

As a result, the ramshackle wooden barn, which was left abandoned for decades, has been given a new lease of life after being converted it into a luxury holiday property, available to anyone who can shell out £175 a night.

The rural holiday home, in Monmouth, South Wales, features floor to ceiling glass walls, allowing light to spill into the plush interior which can accommodate up to eight people.
