The goal was to retain the feel and ageless classic country lodge look. By recycling the old bricks it added a little arty effect to try and capture a timeless slightly aged appearance. The house retains the 4 bedrooms while the size increased from 220m2 to 490m2, this included the new garage and the loft (110m2). The original garage with small granny flat tacked on behind is a now completely separate and fabulous 2 bedroom guest house.
"We had the pleasure of working with Dave Shaw and his chosen sub trades on a major renovation recently. We chose Shaw builders on the basis of their commitment to excellence and professionalism and desire to create an amazing finished product. We were not disappointed. Dave was meticulous in his planning and organising. His quality control was impeccable ; all his chosen sub trades had worked with him previously on projects and were fully aware of the standards expected. They all delivered . His building team were a great bunch of lads whom we got to know well over the 19 months of the project and have to say we enjoyed their company and their commitment to excellent workmanship. I would recommend anyone to consider Shaw builders for their project. We are thrilled with our amazing home".
