The rationale throughout the house has been to restore the remaining original features whilst ensuring new insertions are modern. A loft extension and a single storey extension to the existing back addition were built using an engineered timber frame with cellulose insulation. In the new loft room, externally, the back wall was clad in slates. All other walls and the roof were clad in terne-coated stainless steel, chosen for its neat appearance and very long maintenance-free life. Internally the new master bedroom with an en-suite shower room carefully maximises the section. Light is a dominant feature of the new bathroom in the first floor extension. Here, externally the new walls are clad in hydraulic lime render: a traditional material being used in a modern setting. The new room has a roof of translucent, insulated glass, which flood the tranquil space with light.
