Feasability / Renovation
Self build with sub contractors
We were approached by a lovely couple who had just purchased a bungalow that needed a full renovation. The existing layout was poorly designed and the room sizes were too small for what they required.
We redesigned the whole layout of the bungalow to give better flow and use of the space. We also converted the unused attached garage into a kitchen/dining area and converted the loft space into a master bedroom with en suite with large Velux windows to take advantage of the fantastic views of the distant hills surrounding Oldham.
A renovation and conversion of this type would not normally require planning permission but to gain the most amount of space in the master bedroom and to make it feel more like a normal room we introduced a dormer window to the front of the property which was well worth the extra time and cost to gain planning approval.
As the client was in the building trade they carried out most of the work themselves and got in sub contracts for work they could not carry out. We were onsite at key points of the project when required to ensure any issues where quickly resolved.
As you can see from the photos the renovation and conversions of the bungalow was a really success. If you have a similar project get in touch to see how we can add real value to your ideas.
