This is a live/work project comprising of a large double height artist’s studio and four bedroom house. It was approved within Class Q of permitted development requiring retention of the original portal frame. It is now a high spec family house with large number of rooflights giving plenty of natural light within. It features a ground source heat pump and gets electricity from a solar farm elswhere on the property.
“The house definitely meets expectations and exceeds them in some areas, the heat comfort is very big, the noise is much less than it was, overall very happy with it.”
“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”
“Rafael demonstrated a great knowledge in respect of building work and was able to draw plans and give advice regarding interior design.”
