Site progress at Eastlands Road. The scheme is for a little extension and internal alterations to bring much goodness to this compact family home. By going out just 3.5m under larger permitted development we are moving out of the tiny kitchen and into a garden facing kitchen dining room. The existing dining room will become the full time home office / part time guest bedroom / formal dining which will gain glazed pocket doors (that slide away into a false wall) to give a borrowed view into the garden through the new room. The old kitchen becomes a utility / laundry room and a separate larder. This takes two space hungry functions out of the kitchen so that it does not need to be big to be great. Our lovely (really lovely) builder is working to suit the client’s school holiday cycle and has split the work into phases, taking out a bulky redundant chimney from bedroom 3 and the old kitchen during the autumn term break so that the children can be away during the dusty work.
