AN EXTRAORDINARY MANSION
Built for a famous musician and songwriter, ‘we reckon he would have been in dire straights had he not chosen us to carryout his stonework’. The ground to first floor has been built in dressed Clipsham limestone with split Purbeck stone random walling. The intention was to create a property to appear timeless and as if it had been added to over the centuries. The roof tiles varied from clay peg tiles to stone and cedar shingles. The stone walling
was battered  at the base and much of the dressed stone was 150 mm thick.


LIME MORTAR
All bedding mortar was St Astier NHL 3.5 combined with a predominantly sharp sand mix in a 1:2.5 mix ratio. Hydraulic lime was considered most suitable for the coastal environment. All fixings were in high quality marine grade 316 stainless steel.


 
This internal arched stone entrance doorway was constructed in solid full width Clipsham stone in order to take on the appearance of solid supporting masonry.
