Site Progress - Arts and Crafts Country House

Progress is going well on site with the build of the main house now up to second floor ready for the roof structure to go in. The out buildings are nearing completion with the only external feature remaining being frameless glass projecting window. The pool hall the roof is now ready for felting and tiling with the joists in place. We think the alignment of the tie rod trusses is spot on! This project is looking like it will be truly spectacular.

Works are nearing completion to our Country House scheme in Lancashire. The pool tiling is finished with the tiling to the bathrooms and hallways well under way. The internal joinery and cornices are almost fully installed and the beautiful stone staircase is in the process of being fitted. Outside the external works are continuing with garden walls, gateposts and driveway all commencing at the same time.

Work is progressing well on the construction of this new country house. The roof tiling is nearing completion with the first of the lead roll sections to the ridge going in place today. The interior first fix plumbing and electrical is practically complete, with the internal joinery coming together in the workshop. A large number of rooms have now been plastered and nearly all the ceilings are completed, the pool ceiling is even painted. The scaffolding in the pool has been dropped ready for the pool to be cleaned out in preparation for the laying of the coping stones and floor tiles to commence next week. External to the building the lead rainwater pipes and hoppers are being fitted and look fantastic. The first of the eagerly awaited windows to the main house (pool already completed and looking fabulous) are to go in next week two, which means we will see the scaffold start to drop and the house emerge.

Works are progressing well on site and the building has come a long way since the last update. All the floors are in ready for under floor heating and screed. The roof structure is complete and lead works, breather membrane and battens are going on in preparation for the slates. The coping stones are nearly all on and the finials arrived onsite during the visit, which look great. The first of the bronze windows are in and look fantastic against the cut stone window surrounds. Internally a lot of the first fix items are complete and the MVHR system pipes are going in (red pipes) which snake throughout the building providing fresh air.

Joe visited site yesterday to see how construction is coming along on the new stone built country house. The walls are nearly up to first floor level, most the ground floor window surrounds are in and the rooflight to the pool is on. Work should hopefully pick up pace as the milestone of completing the basement waterproofing is now complete as the last of the plinth stones was put in place at the end of July. We can’t wait to see the view from the first floor.

Lingholm Estate


We made a visit to the Lingholm Estate on Thursday of last week for a design review meeting about the boathouse, site meeting about the cafe construction that is due to start in the next few weeks and a general catch up on the progress of the estate.

The main house is now mostly complete with the works to the roof finished (and mighty impressive) along with the repaired and re-glazed stone room window and the completion of the estate office.

We were fortunate enough to have a sunny day for the visit too which made it all the more better.
