This was again a renovation in a 1930’s detached house where retaining the original features was a key requirement. Once all the wall coverings were removed, as with all these older properties, the plaster was found to be in a poor state.
The skirting was stripped and refitted as an original feature. The door had been panelled, but once removed, a beautiful original pine door was exposed. This was used as a template to make new doors for other areas of this property.
Reopening the fireplace to take a woodburner was part of the job spec. This turned out really well. A timber beam was fitted more for cosmetic purposes, but looks great.
There was a lot of work repairing loose plaster, but once skimmed looks as good as new.
The lath and plaster ceiling was saved. The cracks were scrimmed and it was re skimmed. Coving was fitted as an additional feature.
