What our Clients Say
Holiday Home -
St John's Old School
We were contacted to look at a property which although tired and dated was structurally sound and well maintained.
Client instruction was clear and we knew from the outset what was needed - the challenge was how to fit all requirements into such a small space.
The ground floor layout did not change much but the first floor required more thought. Careful planning helped to gain space in key areas and we were able to achieve our target of additional floor space in very confined areas.
As an example, a small but significant change was to create space elsewhere for the washing machine allowing an additional cupboard in the kitchen.
Changes were not vast, but again a common sense approach helped us to make the most of what
"We have a 1840 built lakeland stone house in Keswick. The stonework and roof were sound but the doors and windows required replacement and internally it needed a total refurbishment. Having spent time with Peter looking at the options he suggested we change the layout upstairs which would provide a more effective use of space, he also suggested dry lining and insulating the walls as well as a number of smaller improvements that we hadn't previously considered.
Having agreed a price and a timescale the work was completed to a very high standard and within budget and timescale. In addition to the work carried out by Peter and his team he also recommended a decorator, kitchen manufacturer and flooring company which we used. He managed their activity on our behalf making the whole process very painless.
The end result is that we have a traditional cottage from the outside but inside we have a modern well insulated house finished to a high standard"
