Progress on Mullins House in Dorking

Work on the William Mullins House in Dorking is progressing well. Jason Aldous of PlanAUK escorted me round this prestigious building, which is mid way through its restoration. Three of the four parts of the original building are being completely restored and a modern eco house is being constructed in the garden.

The finished buildings should be ready for occupation at the end of June. We will be featuring regular updates on this project.

The featured image shows the tiling at the front of the property, some of which was original, and others sourced from local suppliers.
