The design for this property is based on American architecture, in particular the curved main roof that acts as a front porch, which was a challenge due to the complicated roof structure.

This build was done in two stages: the first project being the double garage/Granny annex and the second when we were asked to return to transform the main house.

Interestingly the Spanish slates. we used are mined in quarries and still have pieces of Fool's Gold embedded in them. In sunlight they can be seen to glisten.

NB. 15000 copper nails were used to complete the slating of the roof.

Several builders looked at this property in Ruddington, yet none of them wanted to touch it, in fear of what might be exposed when stripped. My Employer at the time, Chris Hunter, did however, rise to the challenge.

Fascinatingly, when we stripped the roof we discovered that the rafters were actually beams salvaged from an old ship.

The building was listed so we had to use lime in the mix of cement. The Building Inspector from Ruddington Council was so impressed that he gave us another project in Keyworth.

This Old Barn on High Street in Keyworth was another listed building, used by the local theatre company.

There were loose tiles beginning to slide off into the gutter so we had to strip, re-felt and batten the entire roof.

For public safety, the council insisted that we drill and screw fix every single pan tile as they went back onto the roof.
