The refurbishment of this oak-framed, Grade II listed farmhouse concentrated on returning many of its original features and historic features.
The existing cement render applied in the 1950's had already caused significant damage to the property, leaving the oak framework damaged by Deathwatch beetle (as with Lennys Farm). Substantial repairs were carried out to the timber frame and the modern render replaced with timber lathes and a lime render. Together with the use of Heraklith wood wool insulation boarding and sheepswool insulation, the building was allowed to breathe naturally once again.
Bespoke oak and metal crittall windows were selected to take the place of existing windows to bring the properties facade back it's original period appearance. The house was then redecorated, externally and partially internally, using low allergy and lime-based paints.
