Driven by the desire to be very hands on, I thought i’d use this opportunity to test out my basic skills together with those gleaned from observing our team carry out our day to day projects. A simple two storey wraparound extension gave me the additional internal space I needed comprising a new cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, ensuite, enlarged family bathroom an extra bedroom and an extended third bedroom.
I followed the advice so often given to our clients and fully re-wired and re-plumbed the house – it’s absolutely imperative that the below the surface infrastructure works without fault as it’ll quickly become quite irrelevant how beautiful your fittings are if they don’t work! With a traditional and cozy ambience and my fire lit at the drop of a hat, log stores abound around every corner.
The question is, when does one ever “finish” building a true home? Never!
