This project (constructed during the pandemic) involved the restoration and extension of a thatched cottage in County Fingal. The original thatch was reinstated from under the galvanised roof, correct windows reinstated, extended to the rear without being visible from the road and ensuring that the integrity of the thatch was maintained throughout.
