The client wanted to replace their existing lean-to porch with an orangery style extension, featuring 2 sections: 1. A coat / boot room with access into the kitchen. 2. A more formal lounge / reading room with open access into the dining area and gardens. We worked with our architect and the client to formalise the design and due to it being within the Conservation Area we had to obtain planning permission. The orangery was built with a stone base and then we used a timber frame (rather than uPVC) and a slate roof. Externally we laid new stone paving over split-levels and a slate cobbled edging to create interesting shapes to the patio and garden bed areas.
Scope of works:
“I would thoroughly recommend Michael Jarvis for his building and renovation work as he has recently finished a beautiful Garden Room for us built on to our mid victorian terrace house. It's a perfect space. Michael used a lot of the old stonework and incorporated existing features into the building, which was exactly what we wanted. His team are easy to work with and have around the house, so we didn't feel invaded! I would definitely ask Michael to carry out further projects, and would recommend him to anyone.”
