The clients had already had a loft conversion carried out by a different building contractor, but not being entirely happy had sought a different contractor for their ground floor extension. As is often the case with project we undertake, we suggested a few changes to improve the design and were able to start work. Our clients took the brave decision to live through their works, saying that they loved camping anyway! With the family in situ, we tried our best to coordinate niceties, such as running water, as best we could and we paid the usual LBR attention to detail. There is a particular type of brick used in this area and it is often confused with a readily available brick called
Common. We have found a much better match for this brick which we keep a closely-guarded secret! The end result is that the match is nearly imperceptible and the brickwork on the extension blends with the rest of the house. Large bi-fold doors were fitted and a full underfloor heating system under the rustic thick terracotta floor. The floor was something we were particularly proud of, and we came up with a traditional border design and then hand-cut all the terracotta tiles. The terracotta tiles had to be protected throughout laying and needed to be sealed after installation, which took three of our guys a very long time indeed!
Our clients have asked us back since to carry out some other building work and have recommended us on several occasions
