The first stage of the project is to carry out extensive demolition to the existing building, removing the pvc extension, the link roof between the original cottage the the 2 storey historical extension, and the infill roof between the cottage and the stone retaining wall to the street.

Stripping the building back to its original state will allow us to the improve the damp proofing, insulation and layout of the building. The existing house had a number of floor construction types which created ventilation problems. A simplified uniform floor construction will remove these problems and allow for improved space heating through using an underfloor system.
