When a longstanding Solihull client approached us with an opportunity to convert an existing bungalow into a two storey dwelling with sea views he definitely had our attention.

The fact that the initial appraisal involved a trip to the seaside further increased our interest, and when we finally reached the site in Devon, and saw first-hand the incredible views of Slapton Sands, we were hooked.

Being able to quickly understand local planning policy, form relationships with planning officers, and to understand the key local issues enabled us to gain approval for extensive extensions, which included a new first floor across the whole of the existing single storey footprint.

Working for the most part remotely, we assisted with a twelve month self-build process, liaising with local building control, local building contractors, and our client to deliver a truly inspiration home by the sea.

With building work nearing completion we are eagerly awaiting completion of landscaping works, so we can photograph the completed project, for now we will have to be content with the concept sketches and few work in progress photos.
