Having been established for ten years, we’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of large projects, including timeless buildings such as manor houses and city halls.
Over the past year, GME have been working closely with the residents and fellow contractors of a 17th century manor house, situated in a small stone village in the North Yorkshire countryside. The project was a large one – reviving the whole house from top to bottom, internal and external, whilst preserving some of its antique features.
We began by initially stripping beams, windows and timber features, before professionally prepping the walls and panelling, ready for a fresh coat of paint. We did this in a variety rooms throughout the building, including the kitchen and bathrooms, to modernise its features, preserving it for many more years to come. As this was a large project, it required us to return to the site throughout the year, when other contractors such as carpet fitters and electricians had completed their jobs.
As some areas of the home were quite old, we had to take extra care when painting and decorating antique features, such as decorative ceilings. We did this by using special paints, so no damage would occur – the paints would also preserve the features.
Of all the projects we’ve worked on as a company, this manor house had to be one of the most exciting and fulfilling to finish. The house is now completely refurbished and modernised inside, whilst still retaining some of its traditional features from the 17th century.
