From loft conversion to whole house re-model
Bow Tie Construction
The client was initially looking to do a loft conversion and have planning permission and plans drawn by an architect. After we were approved to do the works we discovered that the initial architectural drawings were measured incorrectly and the proposed layouts were not possible as the loft was much smaller than originally thought. At this point the client disengaged the architect and engaged us on a design & build contract. We designed and drew out a new layout for the entire property using revit 3D modelling and instead of adding space in the loft we created a spacious living / dining / kitchen extension with very large glazing and underfloor heating. We re-modelled the entire property including moving walls, fitting new timber floors, painting, wallpapering and working closely with an Italian kitchen designer and supplier. We also did all external works including new patio, terrace, steps and front driveway.
After 5 years of living here we are moving to the country and it breaks my heart to leave the beautiful house that you created for us. I wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful work that you did on our building - it’s been amazing to live in and you guys did a first class job. Would always recommend you if someone asked for an excellent contractor.

“Bow Tie Construction were very professional, they did things to a very high standard and paid a lot of attention to detail. When small issues were flagged here or there they were always keen to investigate and fix them.”

“We’re expecting a dramatic reduction in costs. We now know how much energy we’ve used (in March) and we rarely have the heating on compared to this time last year in our old house.”

Your guys did a very good job on the [window] installation, nice and precise and the assemblies fitted perfectly....Very good silicon application too, with a nice 5mm joint. So please do thank them on behalf of Cristina and myself. We are very pleased.
