Testimonial from our client
"We are delighted with how the extension has
turned out. We enjoyed the design process and the final design is great in every way - both how it
looks and fits in from the outside and the internal space which is very exciting. We enjoyed working
with Catchfrench Design and T&D Carter."

located to the rear and side of the cottage, whilst maintaining the view from the living
As well as creating extra space, the existing cottage was upgraded and where water ingress had
been a problem this was rectified.
