The kitchen and dining spaces of an existing 1940s semi-detached house were opened up, creating views through the existing conservatory to the long back garden. Large scale structural works including installing hidden beams and widening openings to help rationalise the space. A large rooflight was centred over the kitchen area and a concealed utility and remodelled Guest WC were integrated. A new insulated floor, internal dry-lining, full electrical and heating works and parquet flooring brought the entire house up to contemporary living standards, while retaining its period character.
“In reality our project was the building of an entire house within the existing walls. Stephen’s wealth of knowledge and experience was impressive and he managed us perfectly through the process. He had great insights, ideas and suggestions all leading to a hugely improved layout and a very high spec. finish that far exceeded our initial expectations. His commitment, responsiveness, energy, enthusiasm and attention to detail for the project was incredible. Even after the project had finished if we contacted him for information, advice or other follow up he never hesitates to get back to us. In particular, we would like call out that he carried the project at a time that we had a serious health problem and could not be involved, ensuring that progress was made and decisions were taken so that the project would not be delayed.”
