PPDR doubled the size of this traditional small 3-bedroomed house by extending all the way around the original house and doing a loft conversion.

After the transformation

The family fell in love with this property's location and garden. They were fully aware that a huge amount of building works was necessary to turn the house into a proper family home. Moving out while the building works was done wasn't an option for the family. PPDR ensured that measures were taken to make the whole process as tolerable as possible.

The large two-storey extension to the rear created the much needed extra space downstairs and the master bedroom and ensuite upstairs. After demolishing the original, a new garage was built incorporating the 4th bedroom over the top. The loft area lended itself perfectly to a conversion with enough space for a 5th bedroom, a spacious bathroom and a walk-in loft area for storage. The space under the stairase was transformed into a downstairs WC as one didn't exist in the original house. A bay window and a porch were added to the front of the property to provide extra space and a new perspective to the house.

The electrics, plumbing and heating systems (untouched since the original house was built) were replaced to meet with the demands of the new house and current regulations. Similarly the orignal single-glazed metal-framed windows were replaced throughout the house with new double-glazed windows.

The family, being very sociable, wanted a large open-plan and light feel to their downstairs. Knocking down original walls, installing steel beams and extending out to the back created a huge space for the kitchen and living area – making it the heart of the house where everyone congregates. Bi-fold doors along the back open out onto the new patio area. The house is south-facing and in the good weather the doors fold back extending the living area out onto the patio.

Rendering and paintwork to the exterior and a new driveway for off-road parking completed the transformation.
