Conservation and renewal

Much of our work is the conservation and renewal of older buildings, which often suffer from high energy costs and dilapidation. Using modern low-carbon materials - particularly lime for rebuilding, sheep's wool insulation, sustainably sourced timber - and renewable energy sources, we can make these homes and workspaces much

more comfortable while reducing their energy costs and environmental impact.

For example, we rebuilt an 18th Century lodge house, keeping the original stone walls and adding insulation and ground source energy to create a very comfortable four-bedroom home.


We converted a Herefordshire barn into a striking new house, and two 15th Century Suffolk cottages into a beautiful family home.

We make sure we use local slate, stone, timber and other materials, and we have found local craftspeople to achieve these transformations.
