Our clients had just bought this house, they contacted RENOVA at purchase stage because they intended carrying out a complete renovation. The house was liveable so they moved in while we made a plan. This turned out to be wise because COVID lockdowns slowed up the design stages of the project. Living in the house only confirmed that the house needed to be renovated, it was cold. As usual we agreed a project budget at the start of the process, and went from there. Once the budget was discussed Siân took over and worked through design options with the clients until we had a plan that they were happy with. Costings were updated through the design process. Contracts were signed and workshops arranged to select all fittings and finishes. When we had a full set of drawings the job started. Works went smoothly despite COVID. The finished house is the equivalent to a new house and is designed to fit our clients needs, including facilitating work from home.
