With their first baby on the way, Jemima and James Hammond knew their two-bed cottage would need a space and storage upgrade. But the rear extension they built gave them far more.
Damp and dated, Jemima and James’s two-bed, 1920s cottage couldn’t function as a modern family home. With very limited storage and no guest accommodation, the family struggled to find space to live and work comfortably.
“We needed more space and also wanted an extra bedroom to put up the family when they visited from the UK,” explains Jemima. “The other issue was the lack of storage – anywhere.”
