A past client of ours bought a detached Victorian townhouse in need of significant renovation and extension. The project involved a virtually complete re-wire, new sash windows throughout, a new family bathroom, an ensuite shower room. The house was re-plastered with most of the old crumbly larth and plaster ceilings and partition walls taken down and replaced. A new storey extension was added to the rear of the property with all the old original bricks re-used to construct the new extension, original floorboards carefully removed and then re-laid which were then sanded back and given a washed stain finish. Original Victorian plaster cornicing was also fitted to the new ground floor open plan kitchen. Whilst undertaking the work it was suggested that to maximise the space above the new extension a loft room could also be added. This was also carried out as it made economic sense whilst the building work was taking place. With the new overall footprint, the house gained an additional bedroom and en-suite bathroom in the loft. The two of the original bedrooms on the 1st floor where dramatically increased. With the ground floor extended this created a superb open plan kitchen/dinner.
