Ploughcroft were called to a large project at a bungalow in Hipperholme, West Yorkshire, which involved building an extension for a bedroom and carrying out internal renovation works.
The bungalow in Hipperholme, near Halifax, had four bedrooms on the ground floor, with the largest, en-suite bedroom being used as a guest room. The owners were keen to make the space they have more useable and expand into the garden slightly to make room for an extension. The existing room desperately needed updating and more natural light.
The remit was to turn the guest room into a further single bedroom and a guest suite comprising of bedroom, sitting area and en-suite bathroom.
The original bedroom was divided into two, extending one half of the original room to create a new airy bedroom with patio doors onto the rear patio. The roofline was blended into the original building and the original stone re-used to create a seamless look.
The extension walls and roof were fully insulated and two Velux windows were installed to flood the new bedroom with extra light. An archway was created from the new extension to one half of the original bedroom which was to be used as a sitting area. The bathroom was updated, tiled and fitted with modern bathroom fittings and walk-in shower.
A new doorway was made into the remaining half of the original room to create a new bedroom which was fully fitted with new bedroom furniture to create a light and modern bedroom.
This bungalow has been transformed with this work. It has a private area for guests to stay, as well as an extra bedroom for the residents. This work undertaken by Ploughcroft has increased the value of their house by increasing the amount of rooms and the quality of the space, using natural light and a blended roofline.
