Structural pinning with Cintec anchors addressed significantly bowing walls, the interior and exterior of which had separated dramatically. The roof timbers have been repaired in line with the curvature of the walls. Original oak timbers have been repaired and supported, and original tiles sorted and replaced with new handmade clay tiles and ridges. Split oak lathe has been laid, with insulation and a plaster and lath ceiling created. Walls were lime plastered. A concrete floor was lifted to reveal original cobble flooring now covered in a limecrete to protect the original cobble layer. The work was completed under instruction from Andrew Townsend Architects.
