Grade 2 listed cottage chimney rebuild, repair and repointing - Kent
Old buildings are such a pleasure to work on. This lovely grade 2 listed combed wheat thatched cottage built in the 18 hundreds needed re-thatching and the chimneys needed some major repair work. The thatching was being taken care of by a master thatcher who is also a life long friend.
My job was to repoint, repair and rebuild the 3 chimneys. One chimney needed taking down completely and rebuilding, another needed taking halfway down and rebuilding alongside a major deep repoint. The third chimney wasn't as bad but did need a deep repoint in places.
To do the work I used all the original supplied bricks and the lime mortars and sand as always came from the Winchester lime centre.
