Completion visit to Yateley

We were delighted to visit a recent project in Yateley to catch up with our client and see how their project is progressing. Barring some final snagging works, the transformation from a single storey bungalow to a wonderful two storey house with exemplary finishing is almost complete. Key features of the design include an open plan family/kitchen space that will act as the hub of the home.  The space also includes a vaulted roof with a stunning full height glazed window. The works were undertaken by Fleet based contractor Portsmere Construction with Mark’s team doing a great job.

Progress on site in Camberley

We really enjoyed a recent site visit to one of our Camberley projects. The original house was A characterful large cottage-style home in need of some attention and inspiration. Works include a complete renovation of the internal fabric, a rear extension and a new detached garage, all of which have been sensitively designed to create a spectacular new home. With the window installation almost complete and with plastering works already under way, completion is now scheduled for the end of summer. We can’t wait to see the end result! Works are being undertaken by local contractor Marshall and Mace.

Green Belt Planning Approval in Surrey

We are delighted to have secured planning approval from Guildford Borough Council for a stunning contemporary extension and alterations to a period property in the heart of the Surrey Green Belt. Working closely with our client and the planning case officer, we have helped to realise our client’s dream scheme. The original part of the house dates from the 18th century with piecemeal additions since its completion. Our scheme will tie all parts of the existing house and the new extensions into a uniform design with a consistent and modern material palette that is sympathetic to its historical background. The design has also been carefully considered to ensure the additional 80 sqm of floor area - that is vital to the scheme - would comply with the strict planning requirements of the Green Belt.

Works will be starting on site later this month and we look forward to following the progress from dream to reality.

Completion of phase one in Lower Bourne

It is always nice to accept an invite to view a finished project. We visited one of Lower Bourne projects recently to see the transformation of a dark and tired kitchen into a new kitchen and extended family space that links into the existing garden room. One of the design features are the 4m wide sliding doors, that perfectly frame the views of the rear garden including the wonderful colours of the azaleas and rhododendrons. We are looking to get started on phase two of the project, which will involve updating the garden room and alterations to the roof, to create two new bedrooms.

Planning approved in Hersham

We are very pleased to have secured planning approval from Elmbridge Borough Council for a stunning double vaulted rear extension. The original house was built in 2012 but for our client it lacked ground floor space for their family. Our solution has allowed for greater family space at the rear of the property without compromising on the garden space. The double vaulted roof form will maximise the natural daylight to create a wonderful internal space that can be enjoyed throughout the year. We are looking forward to work staring on site this summer.
