We juggled post-Covid price hikes to turn a dated and worn 1930s house into a beautiful, modern, co-living home.
Despite the project initially being to create a small new home built for sale that would sit alongside the owners existing rental house, when it came to it, they decided to develop the whole property and keep it as a rental.
We adapted the planning permission to extend the house, and everything ran smoothly until the construction quotes came back. Due to Covid and the lockdowns we’d all experienced, prices of labour and materials had risen drastically. With a limited budget, we reviewed the project and decided to omit the loft conversion, which, although desirable, was very costly for the additional space it created.
