This renovation was the 5th deep retrofit renovation project for RENOVA in this development. Our client in this case was downsizing to this house from their home in Dublin. These houses are holidays homes and were built in the 1960’s, they have almost no insulation and are known to be cold. This is fine for a summer house, not not to live in all year around. The house layout was suited to holidaying and lacked many of the amenities required for modern living.
As usual, our brief was to modernise this house to make it comfortable and energy efficient. Naturally, there was an interior design brief too which was a contemporary home to our clients tastes, and their practical needs too.
Work started with a complete gutting of the house, including excavation of the concrete ground floor slab, and removal of sections of the roof. All interior walls were removed, so there wasn’t very much of the original house left.
This house was handed over to a satisfied client on time and without any budget dramas.
