• BARN rebuild reclaimed arch

    Things are moving apace now we have some decent weather!

    The reclaimed stone arch that our client chose back last year has come on site after being gently cleaned and Simon & Kevin our ace masons have got it in place, as you see the old fashioned way by propping and placing each stone segment.

    As this was out of another demolished building we never knew the actual size, so some fettling on site and with its new side jambs we are all bowled over - something quite special we think.

    See Simon & Kevin enjoying their jumbo bait of Friday's fish & chips - apologies for the shorts!

    All compliments to Mark and his team at Mark Almond Timber Frame and a client who has the vision to create a project that is going to be outstanding. http://www.markalmond.eu

    We have reclaimed stone on site from our demolition and imported reclaimed stone sourced from three different reclamation yards & then hand sorted, measured & batched on site.

    We went through about 8 different lime/grit/mortar mixes before we were happy with a colour & texture, the joint is nearly flush, just bagged/brushed off before it's gone off.
