Manor Farmhouse

This timber framed farmhouse from 1635, with later extensions, provided Booth and Son Restoration with several challenges.
The owner was very sympathetic to the building's needs and had embarked on a series of repairs, restorations and alterations to Cement Render Removalenhance the property whilst returning several aspects of it to their original design.

The major challenge for us was to remove the cement render that had been applied to the timber framed exterior, encasing the original brick infills and the majority of the timber Cement Render Removalframe. Historic movement had caused this to crack and fail, allowing water to penetrate but not allowing the structure to 'breathe'
Unfortunately in removing the render large sections of the brick infills between the timber frame became unstable and in several areas had to be completely removed and rebuilt.
Rotten timber sole plates had to be carefully removed once structure was suitably supported, and new bespoke oak replacements fitted.

Another interesting aspect of the project was to repair a brick mullion window in very poorMullion Window Repair condition. The window was in a loft space which was under conversion to create an extra room. The aperture had been fitted with Repaired Mullion Windowperspex to keep out the weather!
We had to delicately prepare the window and brickwork, and slowly build up layers of lime plaster to return mullions to their original shape prior to lime rendering and lime plastering the walls. The results were stunning and what was previously a dim and empty loft space is now a light and very practical room.
