Much thought has gone into the renovation of this Victorian terraced house, a small extension has made all the difference but this was only part of the work involved.
An important part of the project was to fully insulate the house and make it much more energy efficient. The house is now fully insulated, mostly internally insulated as this house is in a conservation area and thus the brick aesthetics were important to retain. A new extremely efficient boiler has been installed and retractable external blinds keep the house warm at night whilst shading the south facing elevation in the summer days.
Also important was the need to rebalance the house, previously there was alot of living space which was not particularly well used whilst another bedroom was really needed. By moving the bathroom upstairs, converting the upper reception rooms into bedrooms and opening up the rear elevation to the garden we have rebalanced the house and improved the quality of the living spaces.
