Here’s a transcription of the video:

Hi everyone. Kym Dowling here from Dowling Homes and welcome to one of our projects here at Mile End.

This is a lovely single fronted cottage that we have started building rear additions on.

We’ve designed it, and we’re building it. One of the problems with single fronted cottages is that they don’t have generous living spaces and at Dowling Homes this is what we can achieve on a small allotment and a smallish type building.

What we’ve done in the space of 5 metres is create a brand new living area and this great al fresco area — full height, and under the main roof as well and that gives the property, I think you would agree, some real stature. It looks fantastic from the back, and we’ll show you what’s happening inside.

We decided to do this build in 2 stages — the first stage was to convert the existing kitchen into a brand new bathroom and separate toilet. Now that enabled the customer to remain in the house while we started on our second stage — so you don’t have to think about rental accommodation or moving out — we made it easy by staging it for stage 1 renovation — stage 2 build.

Mile End Home Extension To The Rear

So the rear end of the house was taken away, which contained the existing bathroom and laundry, and we’ve built this 5 metre extension on the rear of the property.

This will be a brand new laundry, and on this side will be the walk in pantry – kitchen going across this side, and there’ll be a dining suite and just a casual living sofa area at the back.

That then opens out onto the lovely 25 square metre al fresco.

So as you can see, what we’ve transformed this single fronted cottage with small living areas into a lovely, wide open space entertaining area.

And that’s what we can do at Dowling Homes — we design it ourselves –you don’t have to worry about engaging designers — we can do the whole lot from start to finish.

So if this is something you feel you would like to do on your property, please feel free to give us a call — visit our website, and on every page of our website is a Request a Quote section. We make it as easy as possible for you at Dowling Homes and we look forward to catching up soon.

Bye for now.
