This morning I got to see this completed garage conversion that I produced the Building regulations drawings for. It's a nice space for a teenage girl 🙂

It's been a very busy couple of months here but today I got to take a little peek inside the master suite of a house in Hereford. It's all progressing well, with the en-suite being fitted out and new cupboards being built in the dressing area - just look at all those shelves for shoes!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's been a very busy start to the new year here and today I went along to see the progress to the side extension at a house in Hereford. The brickwork to the dormer is up and the roof in being laid. The roof should be completed in the next few days and work inside can commence.

I visited this rear and side extension of a house in Hereford again this morning. The timbers to the roof of the side extension are complete and tiling will commence in the new year. The tiles will match the new tiles to the main house.

I am pleased to have obtained planning permission for a small extension to a house in Hereford. The proposal is for the replacement of the existing single storey element of the house with a new, larger, single storey extension. This extension will provide an accessible ground floor bathroom, which will help to future proof the house for it's current owner.

Today I have been looking around a grade 2 listed farmhouse which I am working on the restoration and extension of. It was cold, especially on top of the scaffolding; but from there, were great views down into the derelict dwelling.

Yesterday I went to look round this house which I originally designed as a private job for a different client. This was a tricky site as it sits within a conservation area, and so the scheme needed to reflect the character of the area, and to be subordinate to the house in who's garden the plot sits. That client then sold the plot, with planning approval, on to the current owners who then contacted me to redesign the house for them. I was working at JBD Architects at the time so I brought the project into the practice and reworked the scheme for the new clients via JBD Architects.

Once planning permission was obtained I worked up the building regulations and detail design drawings for this well insulated, fairly airtight house, which utilises underfloor heating, a ground source heat pump and a MVHR system.

It was so nice to hear how happy the clients are with the house - more details will be posted in my blog.
