Restoration of a 16th Century Farm House
The pictures following demonstrate a complete restoration project executed by Woodlouse Conservation. The property is a Listed 16th Century farmhouse built mainly of Blue Lias and Bath stone, with some areas of cob and brick. It required all inappropriate synthetic and modern plasters, paints and renders to be stripped off. Re-application of full lime works took place including: lime pointing, lime plastering, lime rendering and lime washing. This property held unique interest due to the high quality stonework which was revealed during the restoration process.
Restoration of a period stone-built fireplace
After the removal of an old backboiler, Woodlouse Conservation restored this period fireplace to its former glory. This included localised stone repairs, oak restoration, repointing and the installation of a new slate hearth.
