New Light Through New Windows

New stone mullion windows in conversion of stables to flats at an 1870’s stately home near Hay-on-Wye. The work required a careful adjustment within stone courses which form the outer jambs, and to be cut around steel supports behind the lintol profile, in order to provide appropriate elevation and sufficient height of casements for good views of the Black Mountains.

A repair was also carried out at the same location on a collapsed and broken Roman arch. Voussiors of the arch were pinned with stainless steel and repaired using Lithomex, three new sections were made and the arch was then rebuilt on site.

The Stonemason. Dust protection is essential due to the 95% silica content of the stone.
