New Roof, Emsworth
Roof conversion, West Sussex
This small bungalow was becoming too cramped for the owners’ growing family. Unable to afford the huge cost of a larger property in the area we remodeled the property to create a spacious family home. We removed the existing roof and built a new first floor with pitched roof and dormers. This created three good-sized bedrooms, one with en-suite and dressing room, and a large family bathroom. The lower floor was also totally renovated, with the whole building refurbished to a high standard giving extra light and space to what was a cramped, cosy construction. All this was achieved at a fraction of the cost of moving house and when this property was recently re-valued, the added value of the new roof extension was nearly double the total cost of all the building works. This is a great example of what clever design – and brave clients – can achieve.
