This was a fairly comprehensive listed building restoration of a listed property with a new extension designed to sympathise and blend seamlessly with the existing structure.
The first phase of this project was to remove the existing render panels on the external elevations, exposing and providing full access to the original oak timbers. Throughout this project we worked closely with the local Conservation Officer. Once approved, the type and degree of repairs were carefully carried out to a high conservation standard, ensuring that many of the original timbers were saved. The original stairwell structure was repaired and height was added to provide a more practical use for its current owners. Upon completion of the repairs, the traditional lime render panels were then reinstated and a lime wash finish was applied.
The next phase required a new oak frame extension which was hand made to blend with the original property, whilst the design ensured that this new addition could be clearly identified within its historical timeline. New oak framed windows with steel casements and leaded lights were manufactured and fitted to complete the traditional look and feel.
Finally, we were instructed to manufacture an oak frame structure for the client’s garden which would provide a changing room and separate pump room for their swimming pool. Oak windows and doors were fitted and the structure was finished with featheredge oak weatherboard.
