Design and Build Loft extension in Ealing W5
In 2015, we approached Greendawn Build and one other local building firm to quote for work on the loft and refurbishment of the first floor in our 1903 house. We wanted something special and different: a new loft room with a fresh, more modern style, whilst preserving the Edwardian character of the property. In addition, we were keen to reuse existing materials and employ sustainable new ones.
From the very outset, we could see that Greendawn Build were the people for us. Heath, the managing director, came round to look at the house and discuss our plans in detail, and it was absolutely clear that he would be able to offer us a very individual and personalised service. We have not been disappointed!
The work was carried out in the first half of 2016. This included constructing the loft space, reroofing, rebuilding the chimney stacks, making an ensuite bathroom, replacing first floor ceilings and cornices, refitting the first floor bathroom, and redecorating. This was completed, at every step of the way, to a higher standard than we could have imagined. The loft itself is beautifully constructed (the tiling and brick work are a work of art) and the interior carpentry and decoration is perfect. The new solid oak staircase leading up to the loft is a particularly attractive feature.
Three factors have made working with Greendawn a very successful experience for us:
- Heath’s leadership and communication skills: it was very rewarding to work with Heath. He made the whole process completely transparent for us, including the initial planning stage, timetabling, and pricing of individual tasks. He also scheduled in regular weekly meetings to discuss progress and was very good in communicating with our neighbours to allay any potential concerns.
- The Greendawn team: we really enjoyed working with everyone on the team. Apart from their excellent building skills, we appreciated their hard work, punctuality, reliability, friendliness, politeness, and attention to detail. It was clear that they wanted to do a first-class job and would go to any lengths to achieve that. We miss them all!
- The outstanding quality of the build: we now have a beautifully crafted new room which we’ll be using as an office, library and sitting room, and for overnight guests. It’s a space we’ll live in and really enjoy.
Thanks to all at Greendawn Build. Our experience of working with them could not have been better. It’s been beyond our dreams, and we endorse them unreservedly!
