Creating More Space and Light
External ‘make-over’, extension and addition of sliding /folding doors to modern house in Hove.
The client wanted to update their house externally to give it more ‘kerb appeal’. This was achieved by rendering the brick walls and replacing the concrete vertical tiling with beautiful sweet chestnut cladding. A small bedroom to the rear of the house was extended by adding a gable to the roof and a ‘Juliet’ balcony. To provide a direct link between the garden terrace patio area and the living room, large sliding/folding doors were introduced downstairs. Two bathrooms were also renovated.
• Locally sourced and coppiced sweet chestnut cladding
• Carefully specified white ‘through coloured’ render requiring no painting
• New high performance double glazed sliding folding doors
• High quality thin-framed ‘landscape’ roof lights
• New ‘Lindab’ galvanised steel rainwater gutters and downpipes
