We originally completed a kitchen extension in 2013 so it was nice to get invited back 4 years later to build a loft conversion for the growing family.
This was one of the first jobs we worked on and was based in a lovely old cottage situated in an important Conservation area.
The kitchen extension was followed 4 years later by a loft conversion in 2017
Location: Cromford, Derbyshire
Project: Kitchen Extension (2013) Loft Conversion (2017)
Extending the kitchen
The back of the house had a fully enclosed rear yard with a 3 meter wall. We filled the whole lot in and extended the kitchen into the space.
Light is very important and we introduced a number of skylights which worked really well. In fact, the house was lit better after we had added the extension than before, even though the back yard area had been filled in.
The loft conversion
We were invited back to complete a loft conversion as our client needed more space for the children.
As with all of the projects, we proposed the design, obtained the necessary planning consents and completed the build.
This job was for a lovely old cottage in a conservation area. The area is best known for ‘Scarthin Books’, a quirky little bookshop which is well worth a visit and only a few hundred metres from our office!
