Mr W, a craftsman builder, had lived for many years in a conservation area. Approaching retirement, he wanted to build a new house elsewhere in the village, large enough to accommodate his grown-up children’s families at Christmas. A large garden should now also be possible, much to Mrs W’s delight. Note to Dave: As more case studies are added, I’ll give each one its own Page so that they all get a chance to be seen. I’ll give them names like “extended family at Christmas” and “narrow site with poor access”. It would be good to ask the client’s permission and obtain a one-line quote about how they feel about their completed project and working with you.
