About This Project

Following the delivery of a large bespoke refurbishment project in Tavistock, Rud Sawers Architects, were happy to recommend us for this large bespoke 4 bedroom new build project. We secured the project after competitively tendering the scheme in June 2016.


The site was previously occupied by a 2 storey property which required careful demolition due to the extensive asbestos within the building structure and roof coverings. The new building comprised of a single storey section to the front, which provided 2 large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a separate toilet / shower room from the entrance hall.


Whilst the main two storey section of the property provided 2 large double bedrooms, a separate living room with kitchen area, a large open plan living room / dining room with open plan kitchen and a separate utility and guest bathroom.


The roof coverings are a combination of natural Spanish slate and a single ply roof system, with the external elevations being a mixture of sand cement decorated render and a factory treated Scandinavian redwood weather boarding.
