Remodelling of a coastal Holiday home
The proposed extension and alteration to the main body of the house looks to address the hap-hazard series of extensions that have been added piece meal over the lifetime of the house. The new extensions will enable the house to flow more effectively for the needs of a modern family and enable the road elevation to have a more balanced façade through the proposed alterations.
Due to the site layout it is not currently possible to turn around with the existing drive layout, which therefore requires you to reverse either into, or out of the site, adding further complications to the junction. In addition due to the location of a tree with a T.P.O it is not practicable to alter the access in the current location.
A proposed new entrance will be included as part of the development to provide a safer access to the site. To ensure compliance with D.C.C. highways guide for vision splays, the existing hedgerow either side of the new entrance will be retained but trimmed back to ensure compliant vision splays.
Mr & Mrs De Barr are very keen to make the house a sustainable building, and as such it is proposed that the existing building is over clad with insulation and then a render coat. By doing this the thermal & air characteristics of the building will be greatly enhanced, and the use of render is felt to be a suitable material based on the local vernacular.
