Like most people, we knew we wanted more space but found it difficult to put our vision into words let alone into a working plan.
However, Alex intuitively knew what we wanted and quickly began making further suggestions to enhance our original thoughts and ideas. Alex spent more time listening than speaking and really understood what we struggled to articulate.
Once he had an idea of what we wanted aesthetically, he listened carefully about how we would use the space and looked closely at the existing building. The finished design seamlessly extended all the roof lines, tying in beautifully and sympathetically with the original building. This is so much so that the extension looks like it’s always been there.
On a practical level, Alex took charge of all the liaison with the local authority and structural engineers and any issues along the way were dealt with smoothly without any fuss or drama. This is especially commendable given that the build took place during the start of the pandemic. Alex also recommended our builders and what a team they were!
It’s difficult to overstate the difference our extension has made to our home and our family. I can’t believe we live here and how lucky we are.
My heart still does a little leap each morning as I walk in the room. Silly, I know, but it does.
