Project Description

The Millers House, Dunleer

An early-nineteenth century vernacular house associated with the former flour mills in the village of Dunleer. The house lay derelict for many years with extensive structural damage and disrepair but still retained much of the original historic building fabric including well detailed joinery and finishes. We collaborated on extensive conservative repairs and improvement works which retained and restored the historic character while sensitively accommodating essential services and other modern conveniences. 

Scope of Works

The existing sash windows were carefully dismantled, paint stripped where necessary and decayed sections repaired/replaced using traditional conservative repair techniques and the windows repainted as specified. 

All repaired windows were prepared and painted with breathable linseed oil based paint by the ourselves before assembly and installation as was specified in the contract.  

In addition to these repairs some of the windows/doors were missing and were replaced with replica windows/doors as detailed by the architect. 

Best conservation principles & practices were observed throughout the entire project.
