The Bower House

The old Totus Book Makers in St Ives town center

We assessed the terrible state of the building with is spreading mansard roof and 12 degree leaning walls with spalling brick works and came to the conclusion with HDC conservation team that saving it was not achievable.
  

We documented every historical detail and kept every reusable building materials for future use.

 

  

The roof was in such a bad way due to wet rot and signs of a fire it had to be taken off completely, we reclaimed all the irons and peg tiles but sadly the timber was useable.
