Alan Tierney is a historic building consultant and conservation specialist. In 2000, Alan bought and moved into a 16th century timber frame cottage. This inspired a desire to find out how best to maintain and care for historic buildings. He now runs Picketts Historic Building Conservation, which offers hands-on advice to period property owners.
Alan is currently undergoing his own period renovation of a heritage cottage. You can follow his progress in his blog which he posts regularly on the Build It website.
