Miller’s House, Halfcarton


The historic character of this attractive early eighteenth-century miller’s house (a protected structure) was significantly diminished by inappropriate alterations and repairs in the late twentieth century, including the crude enlargement of window openings. We designed new traditional paired sash and casement windows to fit the existing enlarged structural openings and advised on a programme of further conservation & restoration. This included replacement of unsuitable cement render with a traditional lime based wet dash finish and a red ochre lime-wash coating together with refurbishment of the roof and conservative repairs to garden walls and outbuildings. These works substantially restored and enhanced the historic character and appearance of the property.
