Conversion of a Grade II Listed Church into a Dwelling

Conversion of a Grade II Listed church into a dwelling in the East Hertfordshire area

The works consisted of the construction of a detached double garage and store with facing bricks in lime mortar and knapped flint panels to match the exposed flint work to the church.

Within the nave of the church a basement was constructed with concrete retaining walls, staircase and a mezzanine floor.

A new roof was formed over the nave consisting of new steel flitch beam, purlins clad in oak, new roof timbers with a natural slate roof covering.

Extensive repairs to the oak timbers of the ‘Hertfordshire Spike’ roof to the bell tower were undertaken consisting of traditional joints from new to old timbers, new clay tiles and lead work.
The arched windows to the bell tower were manufactured in our joiner’s shop. A new gallery floor was constructed to the bell tower consisting of seasoned oak timbers and oak floor boarding.

A new timber floor supported with a steel frame and intermediate block partitioning was added to form living accommodation.
