About DSB Design

START DATE APRIL 2014 - PRESENT

I started to provide personal services to achieve planning and building warrant approval for domestic clients seeking extensions, alterations and new build housing for personal use. It is my ambition to build this business and in the future seek to become fully self-sufficient.

Listed below are key projects of which I produced and provided design & technical input on within my time as DSB Design;

Alterations and Extension to House – East Lodge
Client: Mr & Mrs Murray
Project Stage: On Site
Role – Due to issues with a former designer, I was appointed to complete revised drawings for a large 180sqm extension to an existing cottage – keys notes where to retain the existing character of the existing cottage and use this within the new extension. Large windows at ground floor to create an open plan, kitchen, dining family area with a first floor master bedroom with a balcony.

New Build House - Panbride
Client: Mr & Mrs Murray
Project Stage: Planning
Role – Complete feasibility drawings for a new one off house for a private client. Design brief including 4/5 bedrooms, large family area with kitchen, large opening spaces with the maximum use of the views and light. The project is currently in for planning of which the building warrant and construction information is due to follow to allow for a completion date of December 2016.

Extension to House to form Dining Room - Carnoustie
Client: Mr & Mrs Pratt
Project Stage: Complete
Role – I was appointed to complete designs for a 4m x 4m extension to house to form a new dining area from the existing kitchen. Due to the slope of the site steps had to be included between the new and old house of which has created a unique space. The ceiling is taken hard to the underside of the rafters maximising the space and create a enjoyable space.

Extension to House – Woodside, Murihead
Client: Mr & Mrs Mackenzie
Project Stage: On Site
Role – I was appointed to complete designs for a part roof removal to form a first floor master bedroom, ensuite and storage areas. Ground floor involved alterations and an extension to for a large utility and kitchen dining area. Due to the location of the existing house it was key to ensure that the views where captured from the location of the new windows and doors. A couple of issues were raised with obtaining planning of which were professional answered to ensure that planning approval was obtained. The design of the extension is very traditional to replicate the existing cottage and has created the look of a former barn attached to the existing house. The finishes have been picked to complement the existing house and marry both elements together.
