This old farmhouse had a tin lean-to porch on the front elevation. We initially raked out and repointed the front elevation in lime mortar. We advised the client that the porch was on the point of collapse and needed action. We agreed and accepted a brief to create a simple, no frills lean-to-porch in keeping with the farmhouse, which we achieved on time and within budget. We also paved the areas surrounding the front in an old English flagstone.
