A family member has been gradually building on to their existing large family house. I have been fascinated iwth the progress, which by it’s nature has been a stop – start operation. They had a cerain figure set aside for doing the work once the hallowed planning permission was eventually granted and they did in fact get going a s a p. The result will be absolutely fantastic and probably worthy of a place on Grand Designs. The back of the house has been pushed out to make a longer kitchen, a sweeping sun room, utility, study, 2 downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with ensuites over the existing garage. It is an amazing job. All the way through I have asked interested questions about different coloured plaster boards – apparently signals the level of fire proofing etc. I remembered to ask about asbestos in any common parts – thankfully there is none in the property. Phew!
