Bungalow Renovation Project, Boxted, Suffolk

Bungalow Renovation Project, Boxted, Suffolk



This recently-completed renovation project in the  beautiful countryside of Boxted, Suffolk was as far a transformation as they come. 

 Our clients came to us with plans to completely remodel a small bungalow and turn it into their dream home. This ambitious project involved the removal of all interior walls, taking off the roof, adding a second storey, rebuilding and finishing the interior, adding bathrooms and a kitchen, and landscaping the gardens. 

As the turnkey contractor, we used our in-house team to plan, resource and complete the project, right down to the finishing touches. This enabled the clients to work with us remotely, knowing we were managing the project to their specifications and timeline. 

The existing roof and every internal wall was removed, leaving a shell that was a blank canvas to work from. Once the site was clear, we added a second storey with a new insulated slate roof and dormer and Velux windows to the second floors, transforming the formerly unloved bungalow into a pretty cottage-style house.  

In the newly-created upstairs space, we created three generous bedrooms, en-suite and family bathrooms and a light galleried hallway. Downstairs, complete remodelling created space for a stunning open-plan kitchen and dining room, with a separate spacious lounge and snug, a study, downstairs cloakroom, and utility room. 

The kitchen and living space was designed with one-level flow out to the garden, with bi-fold doors opening to a seamless transition between the open-plan kitchen and patio.  

In the kitchen, heritage grey Shaker-style kitchen units were contrasted with solid oak worktops and upstands with a large butler sink. The kitchen island features a built-in range cooker and wine cooler and clever retractable air extraction system. The kitchen ground floor was fitted with Karndean oak and underfloor heating throughout.  

As part of the turnkey service, our team took care of every detail of the construction including fittings, flooring, electrics, plumbing, tiling and the installation of a high-end security system.  

Finally, we landscaped the front and rear gardens, with a large patio area, external lighting, and a new driveway to the front. Finally, we handed the keys to their beautiful new home to the happy owners.
