The client who came to us was an elderly mother and her daughter, who had recently taken on caring responsibilities for her mum. Due to her old age, the mother was now finding it very difficult to climb the stairs of the property and access the bedrooms and bathroom located on the first floor.
This problem of accessibility lead to her sleeping downstairs in the lounge which was of a modest size, and not offering a suitable amount of space for the mother to be able to sleep and sit in during the day.
In order to balance the important acts of caring for her mum and fulfilling her job as counselor, the daughter had taken up working from home in the kitchen. However much like the lounge, the size of the room was making this difficult.
To design and apply planning applications for a renovation of the house to make it more comfortable for the mother and daughter to live. This included designing a single storey extension across the rear of the property, as well as an extension on to the lounge, kitchen area and the addition of a new shower room.
After having met with the mother and daughter to discuss the options available to them, we then set to work taking pictures, measuring, and undertaking a site survey of the property. Once this had been completed, we then moved on to drawing up block plans and the existing plans and elevations which were to take place.
Then began the process of designing the proposed drawings to give our clients an idea of what the new layout of the house would look like, and if they were happy with it or would like any changes to be made.
Having confirmed they were happy, we set to work drawing up the final set of proposed plans and elevations for the project. The final stage of which was beginning the planning application process, which once complete, would allow the builders to set to work.
To both our and our clients delight, the plans were accepted, allowing the builders to begin work on carrying out the plans which would make the house a comfortable place for both the mother and daughter to live.
If you have a project which you’d like some assistance with, get in touch with us today, we’ll be more than happy to help.
