The kitchen and livingroom areas had been extended some 20 years ago, but to further modernise this house the interior wall between the original part of the house and the rear extension has been removed and steel support installed. This wall would have been the exterior wall of the original Victorian building.
When finished this will be a beautiful sunny open-plan kitchen and living space, or ‘family hub’.
The rear extension had some considerable damp issues, so the decision was taken to replace the concrete floor completely. Underfloor heating will be installed throughout this ground floor area.
New Doorway to Boxroom
The smallest bedroom at the top of the stairs has been adjoined to the master bedroom to become a dressing room. Further alterations will be made in this area to accommodate a new staircase for access to the attic, which is currently accessed through a hatch and ladder in the dressing room ceiling.
Below is the view into the dressing room from the master bedroom.
This house is a classic example of a Victorian Sandstone Mansion House in Pollokshields in Glasgow’s South Side. The plan is to modernise the house whilst retaining the original character features including ornate coving, sash and case windows and ceramic tile flooring.
First Fix Electrics with Home Media Network Installation
This comprehensive renovation includes a complete electrical rewire throughout the house.
A high-tech Home Media Network System is being simultaneously installed, with a hub in every room to enable wireless access to the family’s media collection.
A high-tech wireless home media network system connected in every room is definitely one piece of modern technology expected to stand the test of time and is already becoming popular in modern households.
Home media networks can have a physical hub such as an iPad or Tablet, usually fitted into the wall, or remotely controlled by using a phone application (app). By connecting wirelessly to other devices in the house, home media networks can be used to control everything from security and lighting, to what music you can hear in every room!
An added feature is enjoying less unsightly wires everywhere!
