A historic farm house originally a larger complex with a beautiful setting of historic outbuildings. This building was in serious need of external repairs, and the private client applied and received the maximum of structural funds for the repair of the external envelope. The existing roof was re-slated and barges, gutters and drainage points were dealt with as well as the addition of insulation and good attic access were installed. The external walls were rendered and chimneys and dormer flashing and roof lights were repaired including damaged roof timbers adjoining a redundant Victorian water tank. Internally the walls to a rear corridor were redone with a thermal plaster and earlier tanking removed. The windows were all conserved by a window refurbishment and replaced where necessary.
