I met with Malcolm & Angela in their old farmhouse in Gortnamona, Schull. This house was only 500 meters from my homeplace, so I was very familiar with this property.
From the start Malcolm & Angela had a good idea what they wanted to achieve with this design and what their budget would allow. They had three kids and the house was just too small. Also there was an obvious damp problem in certain parts of the house, which needed to be addressed.
I was given a design brief and a few weeks later the proposed alterations and extensions were agreed and planning permission was granted three months later with no issues.
Working drawings and tender documents were completed shortly after & Brian O Sullivan Construction, Goleen was appointed the builder.
It was an interesting project with a short timescale to the completion, so that was added pressure, but we made it on time and the clients moved in 7 months after the commencement date.
