Bay window restoration

Vale Road09

This house had remained pretty much untouched since it was built, and even had its original outside loo! However, it was in a derelict state when we were called in. The features were very badly eroded, cracked or like in the sill’s case, had just disappeared completely!Vale Road01

We took everything off, salvaging what we could, and started to rebuild starting with new sills.Vale Road02

We then built up and added new bases, pillars and new caps which I’d carved. A new header was added which is being pointed in with a lime mortarVale Road03

 

These are 2 of the new caps I carved, to match the existing.

The finishing touches were put onto the header stone with the v-cut pattern carved in-situ to match its twin.Vale Road05

It was a very hot couple of weeks.

And this was the before and after, ready for the glaziers and the decorators.
