Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd were engaged to undertake sympathetic building restoration works to this early 1600’s Grade II Listed Mill in Cornwall. The main purpose of this project was to convert the former Mill into a residential dwelling.
Our building restoration works in Cornwall consisted of a variety of elements and they were:
Existing vegetation was sensitively removed, with stone repairs being undertaken where required. This was followed with the cleaning of the existing stonework to remove existing non-breathable paint applications.
Structural Repairs in Cornwall
Following a survey undertaken by a Qualified Structural Engineer, it was established that some areas of the building were cracking and required structural repairs to strengthen the walls. We achieved this by installing Helifix Helibars and grout.
Lintel Replacements in Cornwall
Many of the existing lintels, both internally and externally, were removed die to failure/inadequacy. Replacement of these was achieved by introducing new Green Oak lintels.
Window Openings in Cornwall
One of the requirements for converting this building into a residential dwelling was additional window openings. This was done by carefully removing existing stonework and introducing new Green Oak lintels to create openings for new windows.
Window Sills in Cornwall
All of the existing window sills were replaced and new ones introduced to the new window openings, using solid Natural Slate.
Lime Repointing in Cornwall
The existing cement pointing applications were removed and an appropriate Natural Lime/sand mortar pointing application was introduced.
Our building restoration works in Cornwall are now complete and we are extremely proud of the results.
