PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Rear Extension & Associated Works
CONTRACTOR: Dawber Brothers Ltd
CONTRACT SUM: £57,350.00 + vat
CONTRACT TYPE / PERIOD: JCT Minor Works / August 2006 - February 2007
The client wanted an extra bedroom, a larger bathrom and kitchen, as well as a study area.
Planning constraints meant that the two storey element could only project about 600mm (2'0") to the rear, which enabled the bathroom to be extended and allowing separate access to the first floor bedroom.
The problem of the extra bedroom was solved by extending the single storey outbuilding in timber framed construction to the rear, forming a link with the house.
This enabled an annexe to be added, containing a utility and study area. The original 'two up, two down' artisan feel of the cottage was respected in the detailing and materials used, giving it a rustic aesthetic.
