One and A Half Storey

One and A Half Storey

These house types are new and are an exciting method of

building houses

which are both sympathetic to the rural environment and reminiscent of our heritage. These houses draw on our heritage by the use of narrow plan widths and different proportions to break up the mass and bulking of the elevations. These styles clues have been drawn from the many old homesteads which exist throughout the countryside. Another key feature is the use of the roof space as habitable space thereby lowering

roof pitches

to acceptable levels endorsed by the

Planning Authorities

. With these criteria in mind, these particular house designs are very favourable among Planning Authorities since a lot of their requirements are fulfilled within these house types. Each of our houses have their own unique character and because of their beautifully balanced appearances, they will blend unobtrusively into any rural landscape or urban surroundings. Each house has a minimum of one ensuite off a bedroom and all plans have walk in wardrobes for their master bedrooms. Finally, each house has double opening doors to draw the great outdoors inside and harness the benefits of passive solar heat energy. The

One and a Half Story homes

boast many other characteristics which are too numerous to list in this introduction. We hope you enjoy our selection with a view to making one of these designs your very own.
