This is one of the more significant renovations we have carried out. Our clients on this job were referred to us by a family member for whom we had carried out a renovation.
They had built this house themselves approximately 30 years ago and they were living in the house, so they were very familiar with it. Their family had grown up and moved away and it was time to build the house all over again in preparation for the next 30 years. Our brief was to redesign the layout of the house to suit their changes family circumstances, which included a small extension, and to modernise the house for comfort and energy efficiency. Our clients on this job were equally as enthusiastic about the retrofit works and the design of the house.
The finished house is the BER A-rated and as efficient and comfortable as a newly build home.
