renovation of a traditionnal breton home

Home Renovation Project in Guillac, Morbihan

Customer’s Request

The client asked Breton Build to convert a derelict property into a two-bedroom home.

Work Carried Out

This project was started in July 2015. It was a very difficult renovation as there was no access to the rear of the property. Therefore, everything had to come through the building. Once all the demolition was complete the fosse septic was installed in the garden. After this was finished we could start to rebuild the front and back walls. The roof was built using traditional French methods with A frames to support the roof and covered using natural slates.

Internally the walls and ceilings were insulated plaster boarded and plastered. The first floor has two large bedrooms and a bathroom, with solid oak flooring. The doors were hand built using the solid oak boards. Downstairs is open plan with a natural slate floor, the kitchen was hand build by a local company, and a large wood burning stove is at the opposite end of the room. The stairs were hand built also by a local company.
