Building Project 3

Extension & Loft Conversion to Sussex Home

Situated in the heart of the Sussex countryside the owners of this substantial period property, commissioned AJ Hammond to firstly construct a single storey playroom and laundry room extension, and then we were asked to return to undertake the conversion of the vast redundant loft space to create a double bedroom, bathroom, study and a WC.
    The client’s local architect, Anthony Sherwin RIBA had specified exactly what was accepted of our team of craftsmen. Not just in the quality of materials and workmanship to be used, but to be aware that we were guests in our clients home and care and respect had to be taken to respect the surroundings and minimise any disruption.
    The extension’s main focal point is the bespoke oak joinery that is evident throughout. Structural roof timbers, windows, doors, flooring and the stunning staircase that was fabricated to match the existing exactly. Successful project management and communication was the key to the accomplishment of this unique contract. Regular meetings with the clients, interior designers and specialist suppliers, enabled them to enjoy their countryside retreat upon completion.
