House Extension, Winterhead

We were presented with a challenging site which had been created adjacent to a rock face higher than the existing cottage and the brief was to replan the house and create interesting and large additional accommodation.

The design needed to be contemporary within a traditional form and we worked closely with the client to achieve their aspirations.

We were able to prepare a detailed schedule of work including works to existing as well as the new build elements and also incorporate a gabion stone retaining structure and netting and stabilisation of the rock face in conjunction with the structural engineer Tim Brigstocke.

Extension & Alterations

Collier Reading obtained tenders and appointed B J Campbell to carry out the works in a very efficient and tidy manner and every effort was made to keep the project within budget and on time, which it was.

The completed house is a low key design when approached from the front but contains many interesting features such as a partly glazed first floor landing to allow light through the house as well as exposed, locally made, oak trusses.


We carry out all sorts of extension ranging from a porch to a large 2 to 3 storey major refurbishment and enlargement to transform an existing property, and have many examples of how extending your property can often be much more cost-effective than moving.

Sometimes you can be too emotionally close to your own house and we can provide ideas and advice at our free initial visit along with outline cost figures.

Whether your property is old or new we are able to assist with the whole route through approvals and construction and wish to help make this journey both safer and less arduous.
