Firstly, we are over the moon with the design and the space created by the extension and the changes to the older part of the house.
In terms of the project - I think it’s fair to say that when we first starting thinking about having the extension we thought we could project manage it ourselves and would only commission an architect to work on the drawings and plans. However, as the project grew, we realised that we didn’t have the capacity (time-wise) or the experience in dealing with builders to manage the project properly. I think if we had not had Rachel and Andy to help us with the tender and the work on site, there is a possibility the build may have been slightly different to the one we saw in the design plans.
We have recommended Threads to many of our friends and we now always recommend keeping on the architects for the duration of any project!
