Previously, Mrs Reeves had a dated lean-to which didn't prove to be a very functional or enjoyable space for her to spend time in. Following a consultation with our design team, we opted for a traditional Edwardian cross-over extension.
A cross-over extension incorporates aspects of both an orangery and a more traditional conservatory. It does this by using the well proven Ultraframe Classic roof and adding a well engineered plastered internal framework, to give a perimeter ceiling all the way round. Not only does it give the room a very solid feel, it also gives much greater temperature control, offering insulated walls. This, coupled with the large brick piers and dwarf walls give the build the initial impression of a substantial extension. However, the uPVC roof and large French doors really gives the space a bright and airy feel, allowing light to flood the room.
The addition of LED downlighting and internal plastered walls give the room a further sense of belonging to the property and make the space so much more homely than the white brickwork in the previous structure.
Several months on from completeion and Mrs Reeves is very happy with her new living space and the service provided by Crendon Conservatorie. Her Grandson doesn't look as impressed though!
