Our clients, Sophie, Chris and their two children relocated to a beautiful village in Herefordshire, overlooking the Malvern Hills. They had found the perfect location, but their house, with its dark rooms and small kitchen, didn’t suit their family life. In this podcast, our clients talk to us about their journey; through the design and construction process, and the transformational effect of the extension on their family life.
