A young family needed an additional bedroom and more space to their period semi-detached home in the Stranmillis area of Belfast, together with extensive refurbishment. The existing house was completely “gutted”, and renovated with a full width extension on the ground floor to the rear providing an extended open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, all opening onto a south facing rear garden. A first floor extension over provided for an additional, “master” bedroom with an en-suite, and a new family bathroom. Improvements to the existing accommodation involved extensive renovations and repairs, including upgrading of insulation throughout to walls, floor and ceilings, and also acoustic insulation at the party wall with the adjoining semi. We were able to create space at the side to allow a utility room and a ground floor wc.
