This project in central Gosforth is a wonderful example of how projects can change shape and direction during the build programme to excellent effect.
Initially, JD Joinery and Building Services were contracted to demolish a rear garage and rebuild a purpose built garden room and new garage to create additional space in the home without altering the footprint of the main building to any great degree.
The new building (located on the drive to the rear) was double the size of the former garage and made excellent use of an otherwise underused part of the land. The garden room was attached to the new garage but during the build the client decided that storage space above the garage could be used as a mezzanine room.
Always keen to keep the client happy and make sure the final build meets expectations of what they want to achieve from the new space, JD Joinery and Building Services undertook major structural alterations to remove new walls and alter steelwork to achieve interconnecting rooms and a staircase to the new mezzanine room.
The finished scheme was very much worth the additional effort to make best use of all available space to create the family home the client ultimately wanted.
