Peggs Green was a project involving an old property badly affected by coal mining subsidence, which meant from front to back and side to side, it was some 2ft out of level.
The aim of the extensive works was to dramatically alter the downstairs layout, to make it more practical and remodal to a more open plan layout. An extensive overhaul of the entire property was required including: full re-wire, re-plumb, change all external doors and windows, renew joinery, re-render exterior using Jubb system, insulate external walls, damp-proof the downstairs and all but 2 rooms upstairs.
Despite the extensive overhaul, the client was keen not to loose the house's character. To ensure this, we paid repsect to structure with detials such as ensuring all new openings downstairs ran with the level of the house (which due to this property's subsidence was quite difficult).
