Berkhamsted – Complete refurbishment and rear extension

This project involved another complete refurbishment and full rear extension, including rewiring, re-plumbing, hardscaping and landscaping.

The couple moved out to rented accomodation for the works to be able to run effectively. Internal walls were removed, new steels installed and plasterboarded/plastered, UFH installed to both floors, modern anthractie windows throughout, along with 3 large sets of bi-fold doors to both the lounge and the kitchen/diner.

As the clients are keen cooks, the kitchen space was very important so they could cook and entertain at the same time. Our carpenters installed a contemporary kitchen with large hob and work station, generous island with Quooker tap, dishwasher etc., along with ample space for a large dining table and chairs.

In the adjoining room we installed bespoke pocket doors so they could have the flexibility of an even greater space for entertaining, or a separate space for quiet reading etc.

A new oak and glass staircase was installed, with 3 slim picture windows to the hallway, allowing light to flood in without impacting on privacy.

Upstairs a large master suite was created, incorporating a generous his/hers dressing room and a large bathroom tiled with Porcelanosa tiles and high-end sanitaryware. Also on this floor was a second en-suite bedroom, two other bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally the team created a new driveway area with landscaping to the front, and rear garden complete with large terrace area.

With the client working closely with the design project manager and site manager, all decisions were made together, visting various preferred suppliers we work with closely on internal doors, bathrooms, kitchens etc. At every stage we ensured that the finer and smaller details were considered just as much as the larger details like window choices etc.

On handover the couple were really pleased with the transformation, to the extent that they even wondered if they had too much space now, so time for more furniture shopping!
