Building & Renovating

Building and construction

Creative and stylish buildings designed and built to your specifications by first class craftsmen and artisans to your requirements. We have worked with both national and international architects and designers, our experience counts! Most of the old buildings we deal with are built of stone, the oldest tend to be built of stone in a clay and lime mortar, with wooden lintels over door and window openings. Some of them have dressed stone window and door surrounds, some have stone sinks, stone stairs and flag stone floors are not uncommon. Depending on the condition, most of these features can be preserved if required. The building techniques used in stone built houses are not the same as those used in modern brick and block built houses,

Roofing varies from region to region we have come across roman hip tiles and peg tiles as well as various mechanical clay tiles of different types and of course modern cement based tiles. In certain areas slates are used, some are rough cut from the quarry others are split slates, some are shaped and some are random sizes, colors vary from buffs and beiges through to greens and grays to black. Limestone and various schist's are also used depending on the location. Each type of roof covering determines the supporting carpentry, the timber used can vary from hardwoods like oak, chestnut, and plane through to softwoods, in certain areas unusual techniques and timbers are used like juniper wood for example.nt. Lot of Houses is an official French registered company based in Prudhomat in the north of the Lot, and is owned and managed by Mr. Wilm Snellenberg.

Restoring a property to its original condition. Using either traditional materials such as local stone, oak timbers, marble, slate, granite or schist, or modern building materials or a judicious mixture of both to achieve a perfect restoration.

These allow us to breathe life back into old properties: renovation of exposed beams, French-style ceilings and arches, traditional timber frames, roofs made using old tiles, terracotta floors, etc.
