This project of replacing structural timber frame work, wattle and daub infill panels, riven lathes and traditional lime renders and plasters for the current owners is for their thatched timber framed cottage and was found to be necessary after their purchase. The property was surveyed prior to purchase and this report mentioned very little in respect of any major works required, as can be seen this
turned out to be very incorrect statement.
So to all potential home buyers of timber framed properties take this as a warning that it is very important to engage the people most able to offer advice, costings etc and that is companies such as ours. The magnitude of this work could cause financial concerns when discovered and ruin the dream of that very special home.
