J D Lane & Sons Ltd
Former Billiard Room In A Country House Totally gutted then highly insulated before re plastering fitting with hand made bespoke wooden panelling made on site, marble fire surround, a teak bookcase made on site with secret draws and a very detailed, pristine coffered ceiling with deep georgian coving.
A new home
Using the bricks of the original building. 18, 000 bricks of 5 different types and eras were cleaned ! right down to the footings.Not shown here but the internal, floor to roof height, hand-made brick hall walls and large fire place are very impressive.(The unfortunate windows were the customers choice).Traditional bonds were maintained in the spirit of the original building. No hip ridges were used for a much neater detail on the small hipped roofs.Hidden lead folded beneath the cut slate made for a much better solution.
Stone repairs and replacement
Large Farmhouse Extension & Victorian Terrace remodel & Restoration
A farmhouse extension in a traditional style using modern methods of construction and a concrete 1st floor combined with pre-coloured St.Astier lime render, brick and stone detailing. A Victorian terrace re modeled and restored
The Cattle Market Tavern Mansfield
Restoration of the Cattle Market Tavern in William Fothergill of Nottingham's style.
Two new builds
One of our new builds from a site of many near Sheffield in late 80s style plus a super-insulated new build in a much older, traditional style, built using SIPs in 2015. The heating costs of the super insulted build are under £400 per year.With solar water heating and a wood burning stove with a back boiler, this will be further reduced.
Chester Restaurant Extension
An extension to an existing business by knocking through to the next-door former newsagents. Once the numerous layers of 20c rubbish were peeled away and timbers carefully nut shell blasted, some outstanding hidden features were exposed. Including an original 17/18c brick bread oven, large oak lintels and joists using the keel and ribs of an ancient ship wreck plus numerous large ingle nook fire places.It was summised that being right on the original port to Ireland, this building was an ancient catering kitchen serving the ships.All noteable features were restored and retained through our own resourceful design incorporating them into the various seating areas.
Listed Arch Rebuild Coventry
An interesting challenge to rebuild this large horse shoe arch back to exact measurements with no 'crabbing' to the exact gauge plus stone repairs. All had to be carefully numbered and photographed. The side wall had to fit the copings, curving in three directions simultaneously.
A total remodel of a 3 bed 1960s dormer bungalow made into a large 5 bed family home, attic bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
Derbyshire ruined cottage rebuild
This former lead miner's cottage was ruinous and almost hidden from view with ivy totally covering it. The floor level was reduced with the stone re-used for the new gable and new oak beam floors installed. Stone surrounds were cut on site by hand to emulate the simple patterned surrounds on the original gable. Two bedrooms and bathroom with vaulted ceilings, a scandinavian style stove with a small kitchen. Later we returned to add a kitchen extension.
Ashover conversion & rebuild
A rebuild and conversion of a former quarry forge saving as much of the original walling as possible.Oak floors and a wood burning stove made a cosy cottage in a great location.
An 1700s former mill grain store with an interesting corner detail built to accommodate horse drawn carts. It was carefully dismantled, bricks reclaimed and then rebuilt to photographs with the corner detail bricks re-carved. Converted to a farmhouse kitchen with a bedroom and bathroom 1st floor, utility and storage on the lower ground floor.
