Bungalow Conversion – Treorchy, South Wales

Bungalow Conversion: Our client commissioned us to gain planning consent and manage the tendering and full construction and Building Regulation drawing production for a bungalow that he was purchasing in Treorchy, South Wales.

The site was very constricted but fortunately was at the end of a cul-de-sac with good views across the valley.  Our client was a retired gentleman and the carer for his sister who has Down’s Syndrome.

His brief was that his sister should have entirely ground-floor living, and for us to provide an entire attic floor as accommodation for him.   The existing roof had a very low pitch and thus had no real space for any accommodation; we therefore designed a new roof and staircase connection to a reworked ground floor plan, with a new side porch and utility space.

We selected a highly reputable local builder, with the necessary carpentry skills to build a ‘cut and pitch’ roof with 2 dormers, including one onto a balcony overlooking the valley and its lovely views.  The client was a retired electrician and was keen to incorporate the latest WI-Fi and TV technology, as well as an unusual soothing water feature in the wall.  Click here to see the water feature as it’s being installed!

Although a relatively simple and small project, with a build and fit-out cost of less than £100,000, we feel that serviced design, our core value truly applies in this instance.   Planning was obtained trouble-free, the builder was admired by our client for his care, finish and attention to detail, and he and his sister were in for Christmas!
