The foundations were
constructed by a local builder. We had recovered a quantity of stone
from the old buildings and this was used to build a plinth which forms
the lowest section of the walls. On top of this we laid old coping
stones sourced locally. The timber frame was erected on the top of
this plinth wall.
The cruck Frames
are the most interesting part of the renovation. We used sheerlegs
to erect the timber frames and crucks. If you would like to know why
we used sheerlegs or learn more about cruck frames, please choose
