A1 Complete Builders have recently undertaken various Restoration works to a 300 year old Manor House Nr Ponsanooth, once used as a School and in the War used as a Hospital, This Beautiful Georgian building has many original features and has retained its character throughout.
The current owners are the Fifth Generation of the same family and are very keen to Restore and preserve this building using Plaster Lath and Lime to internal walls and ceiling in various rooms along with external works also underway using St – Astier N.H.L. Lime.
Our first Instruction was the Demolition of an original Chimney, Although the top half had been rebuilt some years ago but the base had severe Fatigue and the Bricks was crumbling and delaminating caused by the Age of the bricks but also Water Penetration in Freezing conditions will also break down the bricks causing them to fail and the danger was this Chimney would of toppled over one day in the very near future.
We have been Instructed to Reline and repair the Flues also open up any blocked off.
A1 will rebuild with a clay hand made brick laid with N.H.L St – Astier Lime mix.
