Welcome to the Lime House. This newly built house was constructed
in 2005 to replica an old traditional style farm house.
The main chimney is finished off with queen closures dental course.
Exposed brick walls have been
built in flemish bond with 400 years old oak beams built in that
were carefully taken from an original building.
This picture shows the beginning
of the porch to this great project.
This image shows the beginning of the first lift.
The beauty of the fact that the
old property that stood here before was built in lime mortar is
that it enabled us to clean and set aside the old bricks for re-use.
Therefore we were then able to mix these old bricks with a new
brick which was a perfect match ( supplied by Lambs
A close up of
a panel of brickwork showing the integration of the reclaimed
bricks mixed with the new.
New Lambs bricks are
mixed with original reclaimed bricks again taken from the existing
building, (new blue glazed headers).
around the windows & door have been carefully thought out
to make every thing symmetrical to follow the bond above the
door & windows.
Who said brickwork wasn't fun. ...............
This picture shows a nearly complete
arch with 5mm joints.
The house is almost near completion just a waiting front door.
