HOUSES

Georgian

Client: Waterford City & County Council

No. 18 Lady Lane is a handsome five-bay three-storey mid-18th century house; one of the finest of the period in Waterford city. The interior is notably accomplished with a panelled stairhall and three rooms having ceilings with Rococo style decorative plasterwork. Commissioned to prepare a conservation report of the building and make an assessment of the decorative ceilings. A programme of repairs to consolidate unstable areas of the ceiling plaster and to stabilise deflected floor timbers was then undertaken under our inspection.
