Projects Overview

If you’ve visited one of our restored properties, it can be hard to picture what it looked like prior to restoration. Often these buildings are totally derelict, sometimes to the point of being immediately endangered.

The transformation looks dramatic, but it’s always slow, painstaking, and incremental, with a strict conservation plan drawn up with specialist architects. Our projects can take several years to complete, since we always adhere to the highest possible conservation standards, and use the best materials possible.  We also enjoy sharing the knowledge we have, along with what we learn through the process of conservation.

Follow our progress and find out how you can support our present and future projects.

Goggin Cottage – re-thatching work

July 18, 2013

This re-thatching work was carried out in December 2009 and January 2010. A full conservation scheme has been developed which would see the cottage given a new life as self catering holiday accommodation. This would give the building a viable new use and ensure its long term survival.
