This full refurbishment of a 1960s Colt House in Suffolk includes the replacement of existing extensions and removal of existing conservatory, upgrade of mechanical & electrical services, and addition of insulation throughout.
Early investigations into the building’s condition found that the original timber frame was of high quality construction and remained in good condition, but lacked any insulation in the external walls. As part of the works, the painted timber cladding has been removed, insulation fitted between and over the frame, and new larch cladding installed.
Later additions to the house were poorly constructed and have been removed to make way for replacement extensions which are highly insulated. The new single storey kitchen extension has large glazed sliding doors which connect to external terraces, and an internal link to the new ‘cabin’ extension. The new glazing frames views of the stunning woodland surroundings and mature garden.
