About us

Alex and I (Naomi) lived and worked in central London for a few years but the lure of the countryside and the sea was just too great and we've very happily made East Suffolk our home.

We're both passionate about old buildings so when a derelict cottage came up for sale in Aldeburgh, we couldn't resist the challenge of doing it up!

Traditional Methods

Alex has carefully restored the cottage to its former glory using traditional building materials and techniques. For example, most of the walls are plastered with lime, which allows the building to breathe and naturally prevents damp, and the outside of the house is painted with natural yellow ochre pigment in a lime wash.

Some of the work Alex has lovingly done to the house is structural and can't be seen – we don't like cutting corners and hope you'll appreciate the end results!
