Broughton House, Kirkcudbright

Broughton House is a Grade A listed building and holds a well preserved living museum of artist E.A. Hornel's life.

Askins and Little carried out the restoration of the external fabric of Broughton House over three phases. The phases comprised of the lime washing of the external walls using a pigmented lime wash, the application of Keim mineral paints to the exposed gable of the property, the removal of loose render and reinstatement of lime render to the chimneys and lime pointing and masonry repairs to the external garden walls.

Our carpenters also removed and restored several of the rear sliding sash windows, manufacturing and installing new curved sash window panels as well as carrying out sympathetic splice repairs to a number of rotten timber cills and heads.

In the third phase we installated a new bespoke roof light over a section of the gallery, alongside internal carpentry and electrical works.
