Three Little Pigs, Restoration and extension to iconic listed house, Milton Abbas

Project Description

The project involved the construction of a new kitchen and bedroom extension to the rear of the grade II listed house, replacing a range of decrepit outbuildings.

Extensive re-grading of the rear garden enabled a terraced area and lawn to be formed as part of a major comprehensive landscape scheme.

Internal upgrading and repair work was also carried out to the existing Grade II Listed cottage. The roof collapsed and had to be completely rebuilt with new thatch and chimneys. Windows from 1790 were removed and refurbished before re-installation. The exterior cement render was removed and replaced with lime.

One planning application and 4 separate Listed Building applications were required to deal with the numerous complex historic issues associated with this renovation. In this building’s renovation and extension project, the attention to detail and the collaboration between client, contractor and his craftsmen, planners, conservation officers and building control has been key the success of this project.
