Project: Windmill Cottages
Windmill Cottages was an unusual and complicated project from start to finish, due to the location and age of the property. Sara and Steve approached us with some interesting ideas and we quickly realised we were in for a challenging build. The property is located up a slope tucked away from the road with little access so getting materials on to site was always going to be interesting, but we don’t believe in problems but in the solutions.
Working with older properties will always be more challenging, and the scope of internal changes within Windmill cottages required careful consideration when creating such a large open plan space. We removed the majority of the walls on the ground floor and created a steel framework to support the upper floors which created the basis for the open plan space.
The extension part of the build went smoothly, and we completed the build with external landscaping, patio and decking in the upper garden.
It was a pleasure to work with Sara and Steve on Windmill Cottages and we hope they will now enjoy their new open space.
