Tilbury Juxta Clare

A recent renovation of a well-loved period property in Suffolk we received some great feedback. It really is appreciated and lovely knowing the owners of the house are delighted with our efforts.

You can view some of the renovation and building restoration work that we did to their home in the images below or in the gallery here...

Here's what they had to say...

Lime Render

Lime plaster is a traditional building material, sympathetic to period constructions. The picture below is a lime and hair render we added to the front of a customers period property. 

We have specialised in period properties for many a year now, being craftsmen in lime plasters and clay lump work.

What Period Restoration is about...

In East Anglia, within the field of historic preservation, building restoration is defined as :-

"The action or process of accurately revealing, recovering or representing the state of a historic building, as it appeared at a particular period in its history, while protecting its heritage value."

Extension work in Suffolk

We have been very busy as of late. The jobs are coming in thick and fast, especially extensions. So I thought I had better show some more of the jobs we have been working on over the past couple of months. 

We were fortunate enough to find another lovely customer to work with. She asked us to extend her house in Suffolk, and re-tile the roof as the tiles had started to break and crumble. 

 

Another lovely reference

"I was dreading building work starting, and having experienced it before I knew how stressful and what problems can occur.

End result of the fireplace

And here is the finished article and I must say its looking good.

Fireplace not roaring like it should????

Welcome to another blog entry.

This type of job has been steadily cropping up more and more as of late, especially at this time of year. It seemed only fitting to give one of our recent examples of a fireplace being readied for a new log burner. Originally it was a narrow opening that would need widening in order to fit in the new log burner.

Bespoke stairs

Here is an example of some of our more specified works. We have here a lovely example of a bespoke, hand-made oak staircase. The attention to detail isn't fully captured in the picture; but the craftmanship is stunning.

Location, location, Location

As you may have seen we cover a wide range of areas here at K.E. Jones and son. Recently we have been in Essex, next job is in Suffolk and after that London!

If you have a project and are wondering if we cover your region, just give us a call, we can do our best to help and give you the options available. 

New kitchen

This is the job in question which the above reference came from. 

 

We were asked to open up the customer’s kitchen giving an open plan feel. This included knocking a wall down, squaring up an archway and removing the vinyl flooring (which was stuck down incredibly tight).
