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!
A perfect example of a kitchen extension and attic conversion on a 2 bedroom semi-detached bungalow. Despite being considered a family home the original kitchens are extremely compact so extending out into the back garden is common throughout these neighbourhoods.
The owners are also taking the opportunity to convert the attic into a bedroom and en-suite, allowing for a brand new staircase to be installed. At present the attic is a usable space but with access only by a ladder.
Flat-Roofed Kitchen Extension
The new rear extension will house a larger kitchen and sunroom, extended into the back garden with new raised foundations to meet the heightened floor level of the house. Concrete steps will then lead down into the garden.
Already a usable space with existing dormer windows, the attic will now be fully converted into a bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Crucially, a staircase will be installed instead of ladder access. This process has been made easier since the kitchen is being remodelled anyway.
The attic has also been extended slightly with the ground floor allowing for a large new window to be installed letting lots more light into the room.
Sealed Vessel Central Heating System Installation
A new sealed vessel boiler in the attic will supply regulated pressure throughout the house.
The work for this Attic Conversion in Kings Park, Glasgow was completed as a private contract in Spring 2011. HCS Tidybuild have taken a redundant space and produced a double bedroom with a full shower room.
