A new building on a garden plot, with difficult access and complicated level differences. Although the client had experience from previous extension and renovation projects, they felt out of their depth with a self-build, so decided to use D&M Homes.
The couple were after a contemporary design with a light, airy and open plan interior. The land came with some complicated elements that the design team needed to overcome, meaning attention to detail was of paramount importance, but the project cost was under pressure. The building needed to make the best use of the site and avoid overlooking.
The couple needed to engage a civil engineer and a reasonable amount of earth had to be moved to facilitate the build. The narrow steep access meant that a fire engine couldn’t reach the property so an automatic sprinkler system was required. D&M Homes’ flexible approach meant that they had a choice of construction methods; and choice of main contractors.
Thrilled with the results, the client feels that the scheme far exceeds their initial expectations of their garden site’s potential.
