"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

Structural Relocation

Sometimes the right buildings are in the wrong place and it may be that these become abandoned and neglected over the years because of their location.

However, believe it or not building relocation is possible. One can dismantle, renovate and re-locate such buildings - provided you have the right structural expertise.

Our best example of this is a mid-16th century two storey timber-framed building which comprised a central stack separating two bays. The building had a chequered history; it was a private house, a soup kitchen in the 19th century and then belonged to some coach builders who had an adjoining workshop. Having then been used as commercial premises it was entirely abandoned by the 1960’s

Before Relocation

Working closely with the owners of the site and the local authorities, our highly skilled workforce painstakingly dismantled the Grade 2 listed building. They then brought it back to our workshop to do some renovations and re-built it on a new site as a beautiful four bedroom house using 80% of the original materials.

We believe the company ethos which is: “historic integrity sympathetically delivered”
Here’s what the owner said “they have put a lot of care and interest into this place you can feel it when you come into the building – it has been put together with a lot of pride”
