Henley in Arden - the Ice Cream Parlour - a timber frame restoration project run by Pete Ward.

The Henley Ice Cream Parlour has been there since Victorian times - and we've done the Listed Building Consent work for this Project - now a team of timber framers we often work with are doing the repairs.  These guys are so careful, so precise - I just love working with people who take such a pride in the work they do.  The timber for this job is from a local wood yard, and is all beautifully seasoned English Oak - we won't use the rubbish that comes from France - it's lighter in colour, straighter grain, and full of beetle. In a recent moment of excitement we had a car crash into the scaffolding and take out the entire lower lift at the front.  Fortunately nobody was hurt, so all's well.
