Refurbishment to a Grade II Suffolk Farmhouse

This early 17th Century timber framed building had, at some point in the 20th Century had a roughcast cement render applied to it. This had naturally led to frame deterioration.

The cement render was removed, during which evidence of the original pargetting work was discovered. New oak laths were replaced where necessary over which two coats of FibreChalk were applied. The original design was then replicated with a freehand imprint in vertical herringbone panels with triple ovolo moulded surround.

To finish, a bespoke panel representing the clients’ crest was incorporated.
