Progress in Ampfield

23 August 2011

Our project in Ampfield is going well.  Our client had purchased an extended bungalow and appointed us to turn into a substantial two storey house.

The house has been extended out over a large covered porch which allows us to build a much larger first floor within a new roof.  The traditional design ensures the extended house sits comfortably in its surroundings despite it being a significant enlargement.
