A few of our conversions

A detached dwelling built in to the side of a hill with the benefit of integral double garage and 3 room cellars.

The cellar areas in the property were showing signs of aggressive water ingress, with some evidence of primitive damp proofing to the walls and floor areas carried out many years ago.

The client wished to utilise the basement previously used for storage as a new occasional living space / garden room, with the option to incorporate a kitchen and bedroom area for a family member.

After a comprehensive dig out, Barrett Kent installed a full drainage management system, incorporating gravity drainage and external soak a ways. Fully tanked all wall and floor areas with cavity drainage membranes, removed structural walls and inserted steel beams and new floor/ceiling joists and carried out small sections of underpinning to open the cellar rooms into one large space.

The double garage area was to be turned into a living room / garden room with the blocking up of the garage door and inserting large picture windows, cutting new openings to accept new French doors and creating a smart boiler cupboard to house the newly installed boiler.

Barrett Kent employed various methods to complete the basement conversion, installing zoned lighting and electrical work, so stud walls could be erected should the need arise without having to disrupt the basement conversion to move sockets and switches.

Plumbing pipe work was installed so a kitchen could be fitted at a later stage if the need arose, without having the mess and disruption of running new pipes etc.

Following all the damp and remedial work, a full fit out was undertaken.

The basement conversion was fully completed, giving the home owner a potential 3 more additional living spaces. Ready to enjoy, all that was required was the home owner to move in their choice of furnishings.
