STONEHOUSE FARM
EAST WALL

Stonehouse Farm (Stonehouse Farm, East Wall, Shropshire) by Conservation architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
Stonehouse Farm
A complete rebuild of the front façade following an earthquake in 1990 that destabilised the original facade.
  
The facade was taken down by hand, and the stones laid out in numbered courses in the adjacent farmyard.  The facade was then rebuilt off new foundations, with surviving stones placed in their original locations.
 
As a substantial element of the house was being rebuilt, we were required to upgrade the construction to meet Part L of the Building regulations.  Rather than a rubble core the façade is rebuild as an insulated cavity wall, with a 200mm external skin of stone.
 
The soft, local olive coloured sandstone is no longer quarried, and a matching Derbyshire stone was used for necessary replacement.  Facing masonry was dressed to match the diagonal chiselling of the existing, whilst quoins, cills and lintels were left in a fine rubbed finish
