This Project is an early 1900’s cottage which needed significant changes and improvements to be enjoyed as a retirement home. Construction of a new extension which included a new kitchen, utility room, bathrooms and bedrooms. Installation of a splayed UPVC picture window in the Living Room providing expansive views to the picturesque village of Gosforth. Furthermore, the addition of new oak floors and a log burner gave a real cosy, homely feel. All the external defective wall coverings were removed then we applied wet dash render and formed detailed window surrounds and heads which were all painted black, The old roof was covered with Buttermere slates which we took great care in getting a perfect match, sourcing the slates locally, re-holing, redressing to size and carefully laying to match the existing. Finally we built an impressive solid oak entrance porch and slate roof to add further character to this beautifully restored property.
