Our clients on this job lived abroad and had recently purchased this house as their home in Dublin. The house was old and cold and the decor and layout were dated. We were charged with bringing the house up to date from a energy rating, comfort and aesthetic point of view.
We carried out a full suite of retrofit works including installing a new insulated floor slab with underfloor heating in place of the original raised timber floor. The house was completely insulated and airtightness measures were carried out to eliminate draughts. Windows and doors were replaced too. A modern heating system was installed and the house was rewired. Every aspect of the building fabric was updated.
A small extension was added and the internal layout was altered to provide a modern layout with a utility room and downstairs wc, for example. Fittings and finishes were selected to suit the clients’ tastes.
This house was completed within budget and on time for our clients’ relocation from abroad. The house is effectively a brand new house within an old shell. Its accommodation and decor suit our clients’ requirements perfectly.
