"The major restoration of a 400 year old timber framed listed farmhouse that had not been occupied for more than 30 years is a daunting undertaking. The key to success is to appoint an experienced building contactor with a proven track record, who cares about the building and its heritage and who you can trust to do the right thing. I W Payne fulfil all of these criteria. We were reassured by their professionalism, delighted by the quality of their traditional craftsmanship and charmed by everyone’s friendly and helpful manner. We would not hesitate to recommend them." Steven

We have a long and successful history of gaining building awards in recognition of our work. These include:

1990 Civic Trust Award – 11, 13 and 15 Chantry Street, Andover

1995 Salisbury Civic Society – 33 Butcher Row, Salisbury

Butcher Row got its name from the Butchers Shops that formed part of the Market Square. Much of the original fabric of this Tudor timber-framed shop was uncovered as we stripped away the later facings. Building techniques of the time were reproduced during the restoration - this included the use of wooden pegs to secure the joints.

1996 Salisbury Civic Society -Barn at Upper Leigh Farm, East Knoyle

2006 Salisbury Civic Society – 51 Blue Boar Row, Salisbury

Blue Boar Row, along the north side of the Market Place in Salisbury took its name from the inn which stood from the 15th century.

Having realised that an original 15th century building was hidden between the façade and interior boarding Salisbury Architect Gerald Steer persuaded the building’s owners to undertake restoration.

We not only brought the building back to life in a most spectacular way but boosted its original value five times and picked up a building award too!

2009 The Fareham Society: The Coach House, St Margaret’s lane, Titchfield.
