Planning approval for new dwelling within New Forest National Park

We are delighted to have this morning received unanimous approval at committee from New Forest National Park Authority for a replacement family dwelling in North Gorley.

Site progress at Stourvale Road

Finally some blue sky at our site visit to Stourvale Road in Southbourne this morning! The build is taking shape, with the timber frame now erected.

The efficient plans make provision for 2-3 bedrooms and open plan living spaces a

Xmas Site Progress

Our project for 2 new dwellings overlooking heathland in Wimborne is progressing well, despite the weather! The lightweight timber first floor level has been constructed over the cantilevered steel frame and will be roofed in before Christmas.

A large aperture over the stairwell allows a play of light against the internal spine wall and leads you into the main living space, framing the countryside views
