The owners managed to obtain planning permission for an extension which added a new lounge, kitchen and wet room, all under a green sedum roof.
The extension looks traditional, with an outer skin of stone and lime mortar. But underneath, it is effectively a new build and has all the advantages of that, including modern damp-proofing.
The extension is linked to the old part of the house with stunning glass bifold doors.
The picture below shows the sedum roof on the extension. Sedum is low maintenance and thrives in the UK climate.
The building work on the main house is also well underway. We will add more photographs in the future.
