Adapt your listed building to create your dream home with your heritage consultant Historic Building Studio

It was a real pleasure to work with Eva. We learnt so much about our own house that Eva’s report is now a family heirloom!

Her research has helped us fashion our own project and given us confidence that the planning officer will see things like we do. All of that with the utmost professionalism.

Eva was fantastic. In addition to successfully getting the approval for works on our replacement roof, she advised us on the most efficient and economical way to obtain the necessary permissions. I recommend Historic Building Studio and look forward to working with them again in the future!
