Grade II Listed Parlour Wing

Badly neglected timber frame requiring complete restoration. Initial string survey and material analysis carried out. Line drawings were created and a detailed timber plan drawn up. Modern brick infills were removed and each timber was numbered accessed inset and where necessary carefully removed for repair or reinstatement. All carpentry was carried out onsite with traditional hand tools. Over 87% of the original frame was repaired rather than replaced.
