Romsley Cottage Renovation


The residence in Romsley had experienced various modernisation works throughout its history. The owners wanted a complete house renovation to convert the cottage back to its original style. The brief including using traditional products and methods to sympathetically restore the cottage back to glory with some modern updates to keep the clients warm and comfortable.

Key Aspects

  • Oak framed porch
  • Orangery to rear
  • Traditional country cottage kitchen
  • Bespoke made garage doors
  • Roof lanterns for added light

As part of the renovation, we lime rendered the property using traditional techniques and replace the existing guttering with cast iron. To complete the look we removed the old conservatory and replaced it with an Orangery in keeping with the style.


We completed the renovation using reclaimed tiles and a solid oak porch. The garage doors were bespoke made to the clients’ spec.

More often than not we get asked to work on modern conversions and extensions so it was fantastic to be able to flex our building muscles and renovate a period property using traditional materials and techniques.
