Charred Cladding & Cork Floors - A Different Kind of Family Room Extension

We are really happy to report on the completion of one of our Permitted Development house extensions at a client's semi-detached house in Shirley, Solihull. We took the existing narrow dining room and small U-shaped kitchen and, with a 3m-long rear extension and removal of some internal walls, created a spacious light-filled family room. For some respite from the clutter of family life, the existing front room of the house was as a kept separate snug.

From the outset we wanted this project to be unique, and specific to our client's tastes. With charred timber cladding we were able to give a warm-looking, rot-proof alternative to rendered walls, and avoided resorting to matching existing unattractive brickwork. Using cork for the family room floor is more environmentally-friendly and softer underfoot than tiles, and unlike hardwood flooring is completely waterproof.
