Contemporary bungalow conversion in Wokingham | Case Study

This project was for my brother-in-law, to turn a dated bungalow into a modern house. The objective was to create upstairs living space with a bathroom and ensuite to master. The project was designed by our recommended architect and we gave our design input on overall room layout to achieve the best finish.

We had a few obstacles throughout the project; we had to remove the existing roof and then put a new one on whilst working under a tin hat scaffold. This required man power and the use of rope and gin wheels to get the new 9 mtr long trusses into position safely. Other obstacles included flattening out the existing ground floor ceiling line as it had settled and was unsightly to the eye. We fitted new coving and pressurised system to up the overall performance of the heating and water fed services. The existing walls were also bowed and out of level which also ended up with us resetting a lot of the existing to create a good end result.

We installed underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and bathroom. A beautiful new oak staircase was fitted with glass balustrading. To enhance space in the ensuite we installed a pocket door. We created a custom new front porch designed to be in keeping with the new look. Finally, fresh new rendering was installed to complete the house.

This is a modern luxurious property which we are proud to showcase.
