  • Floor It

    Case Study: Laying floor screed

    A new build project that found itself cast adrift, required our help to put it back on course. Starting with a floor screed.

  • Pointing the Way

    Case Study: Re-pointing a Traditional Stone Wall

    In this case study we had to rake and break out the old lime mortar (Chaux) and more recent cement mortar repairs in preparation for new lime render pointing that breathes new life into this home's gable end.

  • When papering over the cracks just isn't enough

    Case Study: Repairing Structural Cracking

    Owning a property that is suffering from severe cracking and structural weaknesses can be bad news for the wallet, and the mind. For our client, we assessed the options available and proposed several solutions allowing the owners to make a cost/benefit judgement. Learn how we fixed the problems, didn't compromise aesthetics, and provided peace of mind.

    Follow along as we describe the transformation of a long-in-the-tooth covered terrace into a spanking new sun lounge now offering stunning views of the Pyrennees all year round.

  • Time to Make an Entrance

    Case Study: Setting New Gates and Drainage

    Living on a hill in the South of France has some great plus points - the superb views being one. But there's also a downside. When it rains around here heavy rain and mud can make a real mess of your driveway. Time then for some extra drainage, and while we are at it, why not a new set of gates? Built to take serious wear and tear.

  • Luxury With a Loofer

    Case Study: Installing a Bathroom

    The client's requirements for this project were simple — to improve their bathrooms. One that services the part of the apartment that is rented out as a gite, and the second a completely new installation, to create a dream private bathroom for the owners.
