Malvern | Worcestershire

I had lived in a large Edwardian house for 46 years and brought up a family there.  Gradually they left home and I needed to downsize, the house was far too big for my needs and it required updating. I had the opportunity to purchase a 1930’s bungalow, fairly nearby, in a very convenient position which met all my requirements.  My family and I could see its potential for being updated and transformed for this day and age.

This was all new to me and to achieve this, I commissioned Adam as my Architect who with his vision, skills and dedication has certainly achieved a wonderful, attractive, welcoming home. He suggested ideas that I wouldn’t even have thought of, everything has been updated, electrics, plumbing, bedroom extension to include an ensuite, bathroom extension, lounge bay window with window seat (wonderful view) and the ‘wow’ factor of a timber framed extension from the kitchen which provides a dining and sitting area. The whole bungalow is light and airy and easy to maintain.

Adam was my project manager and we would meet every week with the builder, with whom Adam had an excellent working relationship, to make sure everything was on track. Should there be a need for any minor changes, Adam always consulted me.  He advised me on flooring, suggested under floor heating in the extension area, which proved so comforting in the winter months, bathroom fittings, kitchen fittings and lighting, consulted me about where I would like electric plug sockets and light switches. His design skills were implemented to widen the drive, and a change to the back garden to include patio areas and choice of paving to compliment the tiled area in the extension. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him and I have a beautiful home loved by friends, who would all like to live in my bungalow. My grandchildren love coming here and always find the ambiance created very relaxing.

When anyone comments this is so lovely, I have to give Adam the credit, it is thanks to his design, advice, suggestions, interpretation of my requirements that have made it such a successful transformation into a beautiful home. So much so, that the bungalow next door was sold soon after my renovations were completed.  The purchasers could see that I had had work done and asked to come and see inside. They were so impressed by Adam’s skill that they have commissioned him to renovate their bungalow, this obviously speaks volumes.
