This is an English heritage manor house called Hall place ,parts of the building date from the 12th century ,but much of it is tudor. In the 1930s some of the panels where replaced with plywood ,these were removed and replaced with oak panels .their finisher couldnt match the new oak to the old , so thats how i got the job and ended up restoring all the wood in the house.

This is the newest part of the building , an oak staircase added in the 18th century.the important thing here is to maintain the original finish as much as possible

This is the minstrels gallery in the great hall. Some of the hand rail has been replaced and Using a mixture of distression and traditional finishing techniques managed to "blend " the new with the old.
