Period Restoration, Bath

One of the most challenging areas to work on when it comes to bespoke carpentry and joinery is a Period house. This is due to quite often having to replace like with like and there are often restrictions as the buildings can be listed.

For this project, Clayton Davidson were approached by a client about the possibility of replicating and replacing some of the original period features in their beautiful bay fronted Victorian home which had been removed by previous owners.

Solution 1:

After consulting with them we identified a need for some storage along with integration of modern day technologies.

We then handmade two alcove feature units with storage and shelving, one would house a wall mounted television with storage below for IT and Sky technology. The other alcove would have storage below with traditional shelving above for display, Clayton Davidson matched the design with existing panel work and traditional mouldings already in the house all then hand finished in Farrow & Ball paint colours.

Solution 2:

Upon completing the internal furniture we were then commissioned to replace all the windows which included a two storey feature bay. All of the existing window had been replaced with aluminium framed windows, Clayton undertook to build and replace these with traditional box sash windows all constructed in Accoya timber and hand finished in Farrow & Ball paints.
