A substantial refurbishment and extension project in Blackrock has been completed in time for Christmas. Along with a new 2 storey extension to the rear and attic conversion, extensive sustainability measures were undertaken including external wall insulation, new triple gazed windows, a new decentralised ventilation system and an air to water heat pump.
The latest project to be completed is the refurbishment & extension of a 1930’s semi-d in Dublin 7. Externally, a new timber framed first floor extension is cantilevered over an existing single storey extension and provides a 3rd double bedroom for a young family. The unique form is determined by the lower eaves along the side of the existing house and the desire to complete the work without the need for Planning Permission.
Harolds Cross features in the Property Supplement of today’s The Irish Times, highlighting the hidden works which formed a central part of the remodelling of this two-storey over-basement Georgian terrace house.
