A short video showing an oak frame kitchen extension completed in the summer.

Peephole Cottage is Grade II Listed, the design required careful detailing in the connection between the old and new structures particularly as the host dwelling is fairly small. The rear garden was excavated a metre to ensure the extension floor was level with the cottage floor giving the effect of being nestled within its lovely garden.

High quality materials were used throughout the build, this was a key element in reassuring the Conservation Officer the extension would be appropriate in its sensitive setting. The locally sourced oak frame sits on a flemish bond brickwork wall with slate cills. The oak frame is infilled with frameless glazing and oak cladding with a contemporary shadow gap detail. A natural slate and lead sheet roof with standing seams completes the traditional aesthetic.

A lovely place for the owners to cook food and entertain friends and family.
