Since then, the 19th-century building has been painstakingly restored and converted into a workshop studio for the business. Which is used to produce beautiful custom-made industrial style furniture and upholstery. The chapel holds many special memories for the community of Scholar Green, and we wanted to restore it to its former glory.
Lots of work commenced during the renovation, including fixing the roof and the windows. We removed some of the old plaster to expose bare brick walls, and we’ve also done new plastering. Plus, the original floor has been repaired, treated for dry rot and woodworm, cleaned and polished. We’ve also added a new log burner, updated the electrics and painted throughout to name but a few!
The chapel garden has also got a makeover with new gravel to cover the old tarmac. Introduction of new flower beds to add some colour. We also made a feature of the memorial bench and plaque.
In March 2018 the workshop officially opened, and we relaunched with a rebrand and new website.
