Project Details

This charming cottage had served our clients well as their summer home for many years. However, they decided to make it their full time home so they needed to modernise it. RENOVA was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to work on this house. Our primary objectives were to keep the dampness out and to raise comfort levels for year round living. To do this we needed to strip the cottage right back to bare stone walls including removal of the floor. We installed a modern floor, and we used a breathable and insulated render to insulate the exterior walls internally. The roof was insulated too. We replaced the windows and used airtightness measures to eliminate unwanted draughts. We installed an Aereco ventilation system to ensure sufficient ventilation. Underfloor heating and an air-to-water heat pump were installed and the house was rewired. The layout of the house was redesigned, and to finish the house received a complete cosmetic fit out and was handed over in walk in condition.
