Overview: Ground floor extension combined with a garage conversion to achieve a master bedroom suite, including bathroom and walk in wardrobe/dressing room. We were also able to incorporate a utility room for the existing kitchen extension. Within the garage conversion we configured the utility room, a corridor and dressing room area. The extension we built contained the new master bedroom and en-suite. This project involved us scheduling regular site visits with the building inspector throughout to ensure that building regulations were being met.
This was a modern property that gave us the challenge of extending towards a wooded area and building on heavy clay soil. We worked closely with the mini-piling company to jointly create a design to create maximum stability from the surrounding tree roots. In this instance the foundations were mini-piled 6m into the ground.
As you see in the pictures we show the process of construction, brick and blockwork up to roof level, then a hand cut roof to create a part vaulted ceiling extending through the bedroom and into the en-suite. We completely fitted out the interior installing a shower, bath and all sanitary ware in the en-suite along with tiling to walls and floor. We also completed the installation of the dressing room storage system to accommodate off the shelf fixtures in order to control costs, saving on the costs of bespoke wardrobes.
We pride ourselves on making sure external materials are matched and keyed together so that the new build does not look like a bolt on to the original property. Here you cannot see where old meets new.
How do Creating Better Homes run their projects?
All our projects are fully managed and are worked on from start through to completion (weather permitting). We will not leave your project midway to start another. This helps ensure time and work schedules are kept.
In our projects all aspects of the build, internal and external, are constructed, plastered, decorated supplied and finished by Creating Better Homes. This gives our customers peace of mind, complete project management and a one stop shop for all their building requirements.
