Wide and varied projects that involved the restoration,conservation,repair,rebuilds,conversion and remodels to grade I,II,II* and unlisted but equally as interesting vernacular buildings and structures.

A careful approach to these often delicate structures is always necessary.I like to take plenty of time studying the project the building and planning with all involved before any work starts.Taking this approach benefits both the client and the building,saves time,identifies problems,opportunities and deficiencies in work programs,specs.and drawings that need addressing.
