2006, The Fig House

The Fig House

There is speculation amongst those in the know, as to the original primary function of this versatile building but it has become known to us as the ‘Fig House’ over the years. With the restoration of the Melon House under our belts, we were ready to expand our knowledge and experience once again.

The timber structure had been carefully dismantled and recorded, and the new frame work was progressing well in the carpenters workshop.
The main supporting wall had been badly stressed by the forces of neglect. It had to be completely dismantled before it could be restored.
