The walls and ceiling of the kitchen in our listed town house were in a really bad way and we were relieved when Sean was recommended to us. His mastery of traditional techniques and materials is second to none! He carefully restored part of the ceiling which had collapsed, building up layers to recreate the original pattern of the plasterwork by hand. A ceiling rose was also meticulously stripped of old paint to reveal the delicate detailing. The walls came in for similar treatment – rotten lathes and plasterwork were replaced where necessary and the existing lime plaster was repaired where it could be. Sean came up with a brilliant alternative to a tiled splash back, labouring over a panel of Venetian plaster until he had achieved a perfect finish. He also advised us on suitable paints to decorate the room, which is now the centre piece of our home. Sean and his team completed the project over a number of months and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Thank you, Sean.
