About Rowe Homes Building Design Ltd.

Rowe Homes Building Design Ltd. offers a friendly and enthusiastic service and focuses on ensuring that clients realise the full potential of their property within their chosen budget.

For example, clients looking for loft conversion work may not be aware of the options available (roof light, dormer, mansard, hip to gable) or the restrictions set through planning. I am happy to offer information and design suggestions as part of the consultation stage free of charge.

My project experience ranges from single/ double height extensions and loft conversions through to single dwellings. My most enjoyable project completed to date is a single agricultural workers dwelling located in Hereford. The house features a number of bespoke design items including double height glazing (curtain wall) around the spiral stairwell, under floor heating, biomass dual boiler and store, king post roof truss, working chimney, decking area and retaining structure to incorporate the existing site level difference. The dwelling was also designed to maximise the hillside views by placing the living area on the first floor and bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor.

Full planning approval was granted within the statutory 13 week decision period and unconditional Building Regulations approval granted by Building Control.

Through working in the residential sector for the past 12 years, I have developed my planning and construction knowledge predominantly in Cotswold, traditional and contemporary design. As a previous Code for Sustainable Homes assessor, I am also able to provide advice to achieve energy efficient and sustainable homes.

Regardless of the size or complexity of projects, Rowe Homes Building Design Ltd. applies the project progression structure below to steer projects from initial design aspirations through to the ready to build construction pack, the stages include :
