Our own Self Build House – Chorley, Lancashire

Our own Self Build House – Chorley, Lancashire

This project was a long time coming and a lifelong ambition of mine, like all life changing events it was a complete rollercoaster of a ride for the whole family but what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, as they say.

We embarked on our own self build project back in Autumn 2014 when the plot was purchased at a property auction and we obtained planning permission in February 2015. A long list of mitigating factors meant we didn’t actually start on site until January 2016 but the house was practically build complete in November 2016 (Save for a driveway, a garage door or a garden!) when we moved in.

The end result is a 5 bedroomed detached house split over 3 levels and located in a beautiful little countryside village to the north of Chorley, Lancashire that we are all extremely proud of as a family.

The house layout comprises a generous lounge with bay window, a large kitchen-dining-family room with wide folding sliding doors leading onto the garden, a utility room and double length integral garage to the ground floor, on the first floor are 4 bedrooms including the master with en-suite and walk out balcony over the lounge bay plus a family bathroom and the second floor comprises a large guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a games room/snug to the opposite side of the staircase.

The house has some eco-credentials including the heating system which is provided by an Air Sourced Heat Pump with wet unfloor heating system. The house was truly self built with us being hands on controlling site materials orders, sub contractor organisation and even completing some of the simpler construction processes ourselves. As mentioned it was a very tiring project but one that came in on budget and on time, we saved significantly on build costs by self managing trades and materials to ensure the best prices were obtained.

Embarking on this project was a learning curve in some ways which is quite surprising to admit given our 20 years+ experience in the construction industry, but it has given us a far greater insight into the Self Build Home world than most, which in turn is valuable knowledge for our future clients.

Four Winds, Eccleston, Chorley

Four Winds, Eccleston, Chorley

We were commissioned in January 2013  to carry out a complete property remodel on this unloved true bungalow situated in beautiful countryside approximately 5 miles east of Chorley, Lancashire. The property sat in approximately 5 acres of grounds deep within the Greenbelt which also posed problems with volumetric increases with the local authority, however through forward thinking design and negotiations we were able to meet the client’s requirements.

The brief was to create a modern two storey house retaining as much of the existing traditional roof as possible with one eye on the budget, whilst totally modernising the external appearance and internal living space at the same time. Well, we like a challenge and this certainly was a challenging project but we would like to think that the completed photos do the project justice.

The property was completed early in 2014 and comprises 5 Bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, a sizeable Kitchen/Family room, a Games room and remodeled main entrance with new staircase leading to the first floor bedrooms. The external appearance is modern/contemporary with vaulted ceilings and modern aluminium cathedral windows taking in the stunning views surrounding the property. The original lounge position was retained to the front of the property with a corner window to maximise the daylight and outlook, over the top of the lounge was the master bedroom suite which boasted a walk out balcony,a  walk through dressing room and luxurious bathroom.

We are incredibly proud of the finished scheme which retained approximately 80% of its original structure which was then completely rendered to add the finishing touch to the existing uninspiring 1960′s brickwork. The end result is a stunning 21st century house suited to the modern way of life.

Woodlands Group 55 Bed Care Home, Westhoughton, Bolton

Woodlands Group 55 Bed Care Home, Westhoughton, Bolton

This is a current construction project scheduled for completion in Spring/Summer 2015. We have been commissioned to provide the construction stage drawing package and project management assistance along with 3D visualisation images and videos.

The building will provide specialist dementia care for 55 residents set over 2 floors on the site of the former Red Lion public house car park in the centre of Westhoughton. We are also working on plans for the redevelopment of the adjacent public house into 18 care assisted apartments to be used inconjunction with the care home.

Both projects have a construction value of approximately £4 million. At the time of writing (June 2015) there are just 4 weeks to go until the grand opening.

Further photos will be added in due course and also on our twitter feed @betterplandes

A grand lounge with feature fireplace, study, utility/plant room and downstairs cloaks make up the rest of the ground floor accessed off the sizeable hallway.
