Complete rebuild of a grade 2 listed house after fire damage
After the fire the only part of the house that remained was one gable end wall and part of two side walls.
Dried and pre-shrunk cob blocks bedded in lime mortar were used for the rebuild and repair of solid internal walls and the external walls.
New oak lintels were fitted to openings. New lath and plaster was used for partition walls and ceilings. New hardwood windows, oak doors and skirting were made to measure and fitted throughout. The inside of the house was lime plastered and lime washed. The outside was lime rendered and lime washed.
New services and fittings were supplied and installed including underfloor heating in the two main rooms on the ground floor. A new oak kitchen was fitted.
The new roof was constructed with a sealed fire proof board layer below the thatch. New pumice lined chimneys were built and alarmed heat sensors were fitted to these.
