Work on the extension and alteration to a Victorian cottage in the midlands is approaching completion and the Ballymore Eustace based contractor Pat Doran is doing a sterling job. Many design modifications were made pre-contract but since the work started it has been relatively plain sailing. Watch this space for completed photos in a month or two. The main feature of the design is the interlinked Dining, Kitchen and Garden room with the 2 storey high conservatory. The house itself has undergone a serious energy retrofit also including Gutex breathable dry lining boards (thanks to MacCann and Byrne in Athboy aka Ecological Building Systems, great chaps to work with).
