The priority for this project’s was to create more space and plenty of natural light for our customers photography business in Windsor. Having seen us at the Homebuyers Show February 2005, we began designing a side and rear extension, with a wrap around pitched oof for this 1930’s property. The customer bought a series of Stage A & B Kits. During the Stage C construction phase weekly telephone calls about construction techniques helped the customer answer the builder’s questions and deal with all the technical language.

Our customer, Ian Rudgewick-Brown says “The Building Doctors Kits gave me flexibility to make my own decisions, and I was pleased that the overall job cost came much cheaper than I expected. I was impressed with Building Doctors friendly attitude throughout the project, as most other Architects I spoke to were aloof.
