A F Jones worked closely with the client & architect to design this classically elegant brick & stone fernery. We constructed the whole from foundations upwards, including manufacture of all stone components such as the feature arch and rose window. Internally we designed, carved and installed a feature fireplace amongst other components. In addition, we addressed and rectified some damaged stone windows & other elements of the main elevations caused by subsidence of the original house.
