Blending in the colour of this dark stained Colt House was always going to be a challenge. In the end, our clients decided they wanted to enjoy the natural beauty of the cedar for as long as possible before staining in to match the rest of the house.
Location is always a high priority for most people when moving house. When our clients decided to relocate to this affluent area of Tonbridge, downsizing was always going to be a problem.
When the property came on the market in December 2014 we were contacted by the current owners with their list of ideas and suggestions on how to improve what was currently there.
Reconfiguration of the internal layout and some extra space was the criteria! We designed a two storey master bedroom over a lounge extension and linked this with a flat roof to the existing kitchen, thus keeping the back of the house inline.
The existing kitchen was extended by Colts in 2011 and benefits from a Velux atrium roof light and French door. The obvious solution to this flat roof link was to add another roof light.
The foundation went in during the drier summer months; the building was manufactured and delivered to site in September 2015. Work continued on site until February 2016 – on time and on budget!
We are delighted with finish, although staining will be required in time, thus blending in to make the house seamless!
