Tudor Style Extension and Rendering

This project was a two room two storey extension located near to Biddulph and Crewe as an edition to a beautiful building with stone flagstones as floors and all original sand/lime plastering. The outside was re-rendered and all the timber beams were created in render by using stencils that we created to match the original design. We created wooden pegs out of render making the beams look even more realistic. This looked fantastic when finished, it has been almost 15 years since we finished. Even on close examination the beams looked totally original.Please dont confuse this with cladding.

Traditional sand lime rendering

National Trust Farm House Edale

This is a National Trust owned stone built farmhouse in the beautiful Hope Valley. Over the years the external pointing had deteriorated and water had entered the building blowing all the exterior walled Sand/lime rendered walls. The building was repointed in traditional sand/lime mortar. The interior walls were stripped back to the stonework and re-rendered in a Sand lime mix. Several other walls were finished using renovating plaster.
