Jasmine House

This full refurbishment project in the North Yorkshire town of Middleham was commissioned by a couple who had just bought the listed Georgian property. In need of a full internal refurbishment including the ground floor, hallways, bathroom, we also installed a new kitchen including freestanding pantry cupboards. We cleaned the stone flooring, painted, decorated and installed rugs, curtains and blinds to create a classic, tasteful home within an agreed time frame.

The sensitive restoration of the building included the removal of a plastic conservatory, and the construction of a beautiful new heritage style orangery for which we managed the listed buildings application in-house.

Here’s what our clients thought:

“We write to express our delight and satisfaction with The Forge project managing, designing, and building our new kitchen and orangery. It freed us from the stress of ourselves coordinating the various trades and ultimately led to a 9 month complete renovation to the rest of the house thus minimising any future work for us. We awarded you the contract based on your vision and innovative ideas at little extra cost compared with other companies who merely suggested like for like replacements. As a listed Georgian property it was never going to be straightforward, but all the renovations have been in keeping and are just lovely. Consequently we are pleased we took the plunge of doing the whole house rather than bit by bit (which may have taken 5 years and perpetual mess!). Your patience and professionalism whilst incorporating our changing needs as the project developed was first rate and a great help for us in the decision making needed. The team of people working for you were always polite, tidy, and a pleasure to have working for us, not forgetting their high standards of workmanship. In these extraordinary times we have spent many hours cooking in a fabulous kitchen and even more hours around the table (socially distanced of course!) enjoying the new spacious orangery. Thanks again for your patience and smart design ideas in creating our new living areas in our lovely home.” Customer’s Testimonial
