Following the first COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, Windlesham-based Master Builder LewisLowe Construction were contracted to work on this family home in Weybridge, Surrey. The project presented more than its fair share of challenges, but LewisLowe pressed on to deliver a quality renovation of some scale.
“We worked with our clients on this nine-month project encountering torrential downpours for most of February and then the other ‘small’ issue of a global pandemic,” explains company director Douglas Russell-Lowe.
“Like everyone in our industry we had to quickly adapt and adjust our working protocols not only on-site but also how we maintained a safe working relationship with our clients,” Douglas adds.
Adding a double-storey extension to the side of the house, LewisLowe completely refurbished the entire home adding new plumbing, electrical systems and even a Loxone smart home-automation system for efficient management of lighting, heating, audio outputs and security. They also installed underfloor heating on the ground floor throughout the new and existing areas, keeping the newly renovated spaces open for toasty toes to explore without obstruction.
The utility room is normally a purely functional space hidden away in the corner of the family home, but LewisLowe’s clients were keen for function and form to reach every corner of the house.
Featuring high ceilings, Crittal-effect windows and doors, real wood flooring in a herringbone pattern and electrically operated roof-lights, the kitchen and accompanying dining / entertaining space now offer a relaxing environment for the family to enjoy.
All four double bedrooms are now complemented with their own ensuite bathrooms designed to suit each family member, complete with integrated wardrobes for extra convenience.
Commenting on the build, Douglas adds: “Working on amazing projects like this with wonderful clients is why we love doing what we do…. and to think we almost passed this opportunity up!”
