Our first task was to demolish the existing period extension, which proved challenging due to its instability and because it adjoined the neighbouring property. A suitable demolition method was agreed and executed without issue, with the surveyor overseeing the party wall agreement to ensure this wouldn’t impact the neighbour in any way.
The foundations had to be dug through clay, which is a challenge in itself, and because a public sewer ran through the build we obtained drainage agreements from the local authority. Once the groundworks and drainage were in place, our team constructed the extension with skill, bringing in our carpentry, plumbing and electrical specialists to carry out relevant parts of the project as needed. We advised the client on finishes and products that were in-keeping with the original and existing features of the cottage and to help maximise the light throughout.
