Our clients, owners of Ash Grove, one of a group of good quality 1950s self built houses in a cul-de-sac, were running out of space for their expanding family so they asked us to extend their home to provide a larger kitchen and turn the dining room into a much more spacious family room. They also wanted to add space to the bedrooms and include a new downstairs toilet and utility room. Change on this scale involved major steelwork, which many builders shy away from, but our experience meant we were confident in undertaking the project.
The existing lounge was demolished and the site cleared. After erecting and fitting all the steels, first floor joists were installed along with the roof rafters. Felt, baton and roof tiles were laid making the whole structure watertight.
Then it was on to the inside work. This involved completely rewiring and installing a brand new hot water and heating system. To open up the living space we needed to remove walls and erect new block and stud ones. We fitted out the stunning new kitchen, the WC and the utility room as well as installing space-saving pocket doors between the kitchen and dining room.
Finally, to complete the high quality, open and airy feel we laid a beautiful walnut floor.
