The house was in a bad way. The cement render had caused lots of rot in the cob and timber lintels. Some windows didn’t have lintels at all originally so we installed some and replaced others. The chimney had to be deconstructed and the corner has taken down to the ground. This was then built back up using cob and a new chimney stack was built using the reclaimed bricks and lime mortar. Various cracks in the cob were stitched and rotten cob was replaced. A lime render was applied.
