We started by giving Sam some of our ideas and suggestions, interesting features such as a mezzanine, double sided log burning fire, open tread stair, cat-slide dormer windows (in keeping with some of the older buildings in the area) layout suitable for an older couple (possibility of ground floor living). low maintenance garden, no garage, economical air source heating system.
Sam produced some initial drawings in good time and we liked what we saw!
The final drawings (many in 3D ) were just what we wanted – a fairly traditional looking house in outward appearance with a modern (some would say ultra), airy, well lit interior. He had succeeded in creating some private areas in a very restricted site and introduced some large areas of glass which would allow plenty of light in the living areas and bring the garden into the home.
We can recommend Sam as someone who can take a project on from design to the construction phase whilst keeping the client involved with any changes or problems which may occur.
