This rather bland looking fireplace was built within an 80’s extension to a beautiful 17th Century farm worker’s cottage. Our client requested a more sympathetic and becoming fireplace for the cottage. After opening up and raising the aperture, we introduced local stone work to the cheeks and installed a reclaimed oak lintel. This was finished off with traditional lime plaster works to the fire back and surrounding wall. The hearth was sourced by our client. Cut and laid by ourselves, it sits beautifully with its surroundings.

Incorporating traditional, reclaimed materials produced an authentic result for the project
