Bigger & Better

Our client, Mr & Mrs H, own a detached dormer bungalow in Kenilworth, it has been their family home for many years. With a growing extended family of grand-children and their continued support of a local ‘assistance-dog’ charity (they help socialise young dogs to be trained) they have felt the need for some development and modernisation of their house.

The project with Mr & Mrs H has spanned five phases. In late 2016 we took on the building of a ground floor extension to replace their rather worn-out conservatory. This project was started in mid-October on the understanding that it would be needed by Christmas. A mono-pitch roofed extension was built, with bi-folding aluminium doors and 2 large roof windows ready for Christmas lunch with the family.

At the start of the new year, 2017, work was started on enlarging a rear dormer window in order to increase the size of their main bathroom, the central dormer on the photo here was previously no more than a window, it now houses a luxury bathroom with separate shower, slipper bath and storage cupboards.

The final three phases were to re-render the house where needed, including fitting of external insulation to the end gable wall; renew the roof (suitably insulated) including new glass fibre dormer cheeks and then to re-pave the entire patio and side walkway.
