traditional renovations make sure you know what you're doing

renovations

There are few greater pleasures than seeing a beautiful old building restored back to the use it was intended for. But there are few greater frustrations than seeing such an effort done badly, however good the intention. This is one area where there are clear-cut rights and wrongs. And where being able to make the right judgement about what to change and what to preserve is so important.

Our towns and countryside are full of small traditional buildings – ones that often fall below the radar of a protected structures listing – but which need to be taken care of in a way that ensures they make suitable homes now, and can be passed on intact to the next generation.

If you own or are thinking of buying an old “doer-upper”, then give me a call.
