This client bought a very charming 1860's farmhouse which was already habitable but in need of structural improvements and also repair work on the exterior. More work will be undertaken inside in due course. Here is the work we have undertaken so far: A 'ring of steel' was fitted to make the house conform to the current anti-seismic regulations. A new roof was added, complete with insulation. The internal walls were repaired and replastered as required. The exterior was repointed. The transformation of the property is startling.
