New extension for period property in Suffolk

We recently completed an attractive, and fairly large, extension on a period property near our Sudbury base here in Suffolk.

The work was extensive, and as you can see from our slideshow video below, the results were eye-catching. The home owners were certainly delighted with the work we did for them.

Is your period property in need of restoration?

Do you own a period property that you are looking to renovate or restore to its former glory?

Does it hold listed building status? Is it in a conservation area? Are there any other considerations you must make before changing the property structurally, or visually?

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.

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.

What is Period Property Restoration?

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

It's great when we make our customers happy, whether restoring or renovating their period property, or helping them create and build a complete new home or extension.

Here is another lovely reference following a recent job here in Suffolk... 

Fireplace renovation and logburner installation in Suffolk

Renovating or rebuilding fireplaces is a job that has been regularly cropping up for us here in Suffolk and Essex.

It seemed only fitting to give one of our recent examples of a fireplace being readied for a new log burner installation. 

Originally it was a narrow opening that would need widening in order to fit in the new log burner.
