PROJECT DETAILS

This was a perfect RENOVA jobs. Our clients owned this home for many years but had moved abroad to work some years back. Now they were returning home and they wanted their home to be perfect.

For the right accommodation it was necessary to extend at first floor level and to add a porch. This required a planning application which we managed to get first time. We also completely reconfigured the original space. The house is small so it required some clever design ideas to make it work.

The house required needed the full suite of retrofit works as listed above, so we started with a total strip out, right back to bare walls and timbers.

Like every RENOVA job it also needed a full suite of fittings and finishes to make it a home. The clients attended from abroad for a series of workshops which made the selection of fittings and finishes very efficient. To complete the job we arranged for a patio to the rear and paving to the front. Just the gardens were left to the owner to complete which was their wish.

This house now fits our clients needs like a glove because it is designed to meet their needs exactly. It is also the equivalent of a modern home from an energy efficiency and comfort point of view.
