Eller How, Ambleside, Lake District: a traditional building extension project
To work alongside Martin Boyd Architectural Designs and convert a 1960s granny flat into a modern apartment for use by visiting family and friends. The apartment is attached to the main house but is self-contained.
Team on site:
As project and site managers we brought in our full range of tradesmen to complete the conversion. The carpenters and joiners played a particularly large role in this project, creating a stunning bespoke balustrade for the mezzanine and a feature staircase leading out of the dining area.
Work carried out:
One of the main areas of structural work was the removal of the flat ceilings in order to create a balcony overlooking the dining area. This also freed up space to create a second bedroom. As ever with traditional building conversions, much was done to retain original character and period features, in this build the beams and stonework are really stunning. We also provided interior finishing with a modern kitchen and bathroom fit.
Eller How won a 2012 award for small conversion in the North West of England.
