Bungalow Extensions & Renovation
Type of Building
Value of Project
Robinsons are known for their agricultural and commercial buildings, but we also have fantastic Architectural & Main Contractor teams who can help bring your residential building ambitions to life!
A customer approached us to breathe life into a traditional Scottish farm cottage which had not been occupied for almost 30 years. It needed to be modernised and fit for the next generation of a family, giving a comfortable and functional home.
Working closely with the customer, all permissions (planning permission, building warrant and engineering) were achieved for the construction of an extension to add an additional shower room, utility and boot room/outdoor clothing room as well as the complete stripping back of the existing buildings internals to effectively fill the property with insulation to ensure the harsh Scottish winters were only witnessed looking out of a warm comfortable space. The internal layout was reconfigured, utilising our structural engineering input to create a better flow, and to make the most of the homes' stunning view, all the main elevation windows were lowered to take in the view over the local hills from a seated position on the sofa. Once the internals were fully insulated to modern standards, a full electrical rewire, modern kitchen and high-quality finish throughout was installed which will stand up to the next 30 years.
Andrew Robb, Head of our Design Team said:
“This was a thoroughly enjoyable project to be involved with - rarely do we get the opportunity to assist in breathing new life into older building which was no longer fit for purpose! If you have any projects in mind, please give me a call to discuss.”
