David Hopwood Building Services was asked by Nigel and Lisa Chaplin, the owners of Brook Cottage, to create a two storey extension that would be completely in keeping with the style and character of the 18th century cottage, whilst adding significant additional space and functionality in the form of an extra bedroom upstairs, and a kitchen and sitting room downstairs.
We collaborated very closely with the project architect, Geoff Rouane and O'Neill Electrical, not to mention the owners of the cottage, to build the extension, using top quality, traditional materials, including oak fascias and cast iron guttering, as well as closely matching the brickwork to the existing structure of the cottage.
The project involved extensive interior and exterior remodeling, including moving the building's staircase, reconfiguring the bedroom layouts and the installation of a new bathroom.
Our combined hard work and painstaking attention to detail culminated in not only what we think is a very handsome property, but also our eventual nomination and winning of the prestigious Local Authority Building Control Award.
