This project is a former oak framed cart lodge which has previously been converted into a dwelling. Headroom at first floor was limited so the ground and first floors were both lowered to improve this. A large two storey oak framed extension has been added to create a garden room and an additional bedroom at first floor level. Despite the extensive glazing and the increased floor area, overall the dwelling’s energy consumption has been reduced by around 40%. This has been possible due to a combination of major improvements to the building’s thermal envelope along with a new heating system.
