An outstanding extension to this 100-year old property gives the owners an extensive summer living area and a new kitchen of the highest quality. Handmade units combine with granite work surfaces to give the kitchen a contemporary feel, while the spacious summer room is used both as a sitting and dining area. Attractive coving to the ceiling helps marry the extension to the original house. Large windows on two sides of the room make it light and airy, with french doors opening onto the landscaped garden.
The project took eight months to complete but disruption to the customer and his family was minimal.
What the customer said:
"Our job was particularly awkward because the water and heating services needed locating but all obstacles were overcome with the minimum of fuss." Mr Mike Quinn, customer
What the Master Builder of the Year judges said:
"This is an outstanding project with first class workmanship all round. The extension is a fantastic match to the original building."
