Originally a series of farmworkers’ cottages, this project involved stripping back to reveal its 15th

Century timber skeleton, restoration, redecorations and also extending the property in a modern and

distinctive manner.  The modern nature of the new extension won favourable support from English

Heritage and the Ancient Monuments Society.


Private Dwelling

After removing cement render from the  original house, it was discovered that a lot of the

timber frame was beyond repair.  New foundations were therefore constructed and the walls

and roof were carefully re-assembled with protective materials such as sheep’s wool insulation

and lime render to preserve the historic fabric of the building.
