Appletree farmhouse has won Winner Herts Building and Construction Award 2018 in both the Refurbishment category as well as the Architect of the Year Category.
This project comprised the sensitive and meticulous repair of a Grade II listed farmhouse on the edge of Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Works included careful repairs to roofs, brickwork and timber frames, and the successful use of hot-mixed lime mortar. Many mediaeval details were revealed during construction, such as a window with shutter grooves and diamond mullions, timber stop beads dating back to c1550, and most importantly, two painted mediaeval timber braces dating from c.1500 -1550.
