Project Details

The house from the 1950's, with the flat roofed extension built a few years after completion of the main building. In the words of the applicant, the general appearance of the building "looks a little tired".

The flat roofed extension was demolished and replaced with a two storey gabled wing extension. The kitchen was extended to form a contemporary open plan kitchen and sun room.

The appearance of the building was brought up to date with the application of a polymer modified cementitious render.

The project involved the submission of a planning application to Cheshire East Council, followed by detailed plans to their building control department.
