Farmhouse at Hemyock. Thatching begins

February 13, 2014

After a small delay due to inclement weather, the thatching at this sensitive restoration project has begun in earnest. It was a pleasure to watch skilled craftsmen working and to discuss the details of the process with them. This element of work, along with the bespoke timber and metal windows, will seal the building and make it water tight for the first time in half a century. Already the building is beginning to look more like a home and everywhere on site are examples of the beautiful traditional craftsmanship that underpins the design; from the oak lintels to the lime render to the water reed thatch.
