Holmes Drive, Hebburn
Adding some much needed extra space to our clients new build property on their estate in Hebburn.
Extension & Conversion Project
Another project envisioned by our friends at Acre Design, this recent new-build home took prime spot on its estate in Hebburn with the largest garden and front views over a park. But with a growing family, more space was needed.
Introducing a loft conversion for a new master suite with en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe area gave our clients a private and personal space they wanted, whilst freeing up space on the 1st floor for the kids to take over. A single-storey extension to the rear, opening up the kitchen and living room to create one large space, gives the whole family ample space to spend time together.
With our clients living in the property throughout, and the build spanning over the Christmas break; the build sequence was key here. We started with the foundations and sub-structure of the extension to bring this out of the ground before the scaffold was erected to tackle the structural work of the loft. This was all complete to water-tight and insulated stage before the opening was made for the new loft staircase.
The team then moved back to the ground floor extension and built this up to roof level ready for the ‘break-through work to commence after the Christmas break. This left the family with their home in full working order for the Christmas break before the more disruptive work began in earnest in the New Year.
Its always a priority for us as a team to put the wants and needs of our clients first and our aim throughout any build is to make it as least-disruptive a process as possible. This often means working around clients living in their homes throughout the build which requires us to plan our build programs to suit.
A full turn-key approach to this project meant the team employed all trades throughout and supplied all materials – with the only exception being the supply of the kitchen, utility and en-suite. Supplied by Callerton Kitchens and installed by our joiners, the kitchen is fantastic quality and works so well in the new space. Carpets and hard flooring was supplied and fitted by Karpet Mills and built-in wardrobes and media unit were designed and manufactured by the team at Lifestyle Design NE and installed by our joiners.
Our client had very specific ideas of how they wanted the new spaces to work and were detailed driven which gave out management team a run for their money in terms of quality control but it makes it all the more worthwhile when they are left as happy as they have been on this project. Check out what they had to say below…
“Brilliant! Shea, Shaun and the rest of their team were fantastic throughout our project – communication always clear and all team respectful to us and our neighbours! Fast acting to any unforeseen issues and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Anyone lucky enough to have Mountfair run their reno project will not be disappointed with the outstanding results they can deliver!”
