The cottage was in need of an overhaul inside and out. The existing utility room and porch extensions were poorly constructed in brick that didn't match, there was a very old lean-to greenhouse which was in a dangerous state of repair and the cottage layout and facilities needed updating for modern living.
The old greenhouse and utility and porch extensions were demolished, outhouse space brought into the living accommodation and ground floor rooms opened up by the use of steel beams. A new two-storey extension provides utility / boot room with wc and boiler cupboard on the ground floor and a modern shower room above. A new porch was constructed in cavity wall in a style to match the cottage.
The new conservatory (on the site of demolished green house) is a bespoke one-off design hardwood conservatory made by T Clarke, Boston http://www.tclarkejoinery.co.uk Builders GN Construction, Woodhall Spa 01526 353197
