Listed Building Restoration

Listed Building Restoration of Grade II Listed Rectory

Raising the roof

A Grade II Listed Building, this old rectory was originally built in the 18th century and the current owners wished it to be fully restored using traditional methods and materials.

Through many years of neglect, the original oak roof was in a very poor state of repair which meant that it had to be replaced. Using traditional methods we were able to remove the old roof and replace it with reclaimed oak using pegged tenons.

The outside walls were replastered using lime plastering. New flagstone floors were laid. A French drain was laid around the property to stop the ingress of water. The roof space was converted into bedrooms.

We were able to use our knowledge, expertise and commitment to environmental sustainability to recreate a home that now looks as it did when it was originally built.

We worked closely with our clients to ensure that all their wishes were addressed in the way that they had requested.
