The Nook - Ightham
Building Design Studio was appointed by the owners of a small cottage called The Nook in Ightham, Kent. With minimal building knowledge, the owners had started the cottage renovation themselves before approaching us for assistance with the complex and challenging extension.
We were appointed to conduct a Building Control Application and prepare detailed drawings for the two-storey side and rear extension. This was to be produced alongside regular site inspections and whilst remaining on hand to deal with any site issues that may have arisen.
During the project we encountered and overcame a series of challenges that included:
- Very tight site with strict planning conditions
- Next to a listed building with party wall issues
- Serve groundworks and retaining walls
- Located in a conservation area
