Sara’s Bungalow renovation and rear single storey extension
Sarah wanted to breathe new life into an old fashioned bungalow by remodelling the interior and extending the house to the rear.
She likes open-plan living, so the plan was to create separate but interconnected areas and adaptable spaces.
I felt it wouldn’t be too difficult to bring it up to date and make it into a modern home.
Dale Cochrane of Your-Build loves bungalows as living spaces and building projects!
His passion was first kindled when travelling in Australia, where a high percentage of the housing stock is made up of single storey dwellings.
I like working on single storey buildings because it is so much easier and you can work faster
Tackling building snags generally costs time and money so you have to hold your nerve!
Sarah was building an extension on a clay soil during the wettest January for five years and a planning issues delayed took a month to sort.
We’ve got a very big flat roof on here and places like Cranleigh, they’re are not fond of flat roofs.
Sarah and Dale worked as a very effective team and Sarah loves the bungalow’s new space and finish
But it still remains to be seen whether she will make her money back on the renovation – or even make a profit.
After I posted the job I got a few replies but Dale’s response was the only one I followed up.
