Work is progressing well on the renovation of and extension to a Grade II listed dwelling – which is a former shop – in the historic heart of Haddenham.
The main part of the building is constructed from witchert, which is a common historic building material in the Haddenham area. With a plinth of rubble stones known locally as ‘grumplings’, the earth wall was constructed above with a lime render finish. The programme of works has also involved repairs to the roof structure, floor strengthening and re-plastering with lime plaster.
A new rear extension will allow space for an extra first floor bedroom with en suite and a larger kitchen, with bi-folding doors opening out onto the rear courtyard.
Completion of this interesting project is due at the end of the year.
