Ongoing work-Thatched Mud Cottage in Co. Kildare

This video explains the work carried out by the owner of a Thatched Mud Cottage by the Liffey in Co. Kildare,  in which this practice provided a full architectural service and conservation advice.

The video was created from a grant sponsored by Creative Ireland for showcasing the Thatch and Mud repairs to the cottage, along with a new modern extension to the rear replacing an earlier 1950’s. concrete extension. While the work was disrupted by Covid and a growing family, it is presently being completed for a new arrival in 2022!
