Our home in Heath Charnock was a rambling old property of local historic importance. The house had been extended in Victorian times and again in the 1960's with a poorly designed annexe that did not reflect the character of the house. The accommodation, although spacious, did not meet our family's requirements and the need to provide a self-contained apartment for my mother.
Mike Sherrington helped us to achieve our objectives within the challenging constraints imposed by the existing layout of the historic property and the council's policies regarding house extensions within the green belt.
We are very happy with the completed extension and internal alterations, which suit our needs perfectly, and would be happy to recommend Mike Sherrington to anyone considering a similar project.
Mr. & Mrs, R. Heath, Charnock
To whom it may concern,
I would be happy to recommend Mike Sherrington to act for you as an architect.
Mike has helped me with two projects recently, the first being creating a pair of apartments above my retail business and the second was creating a new home for us on the site of our old bungalow which my expanding family had outgrown.
Mike did a great job with the apartments which complied with all the stringent regulations regarding acoustic separation and fire compartmentation. He did all the design and technical drawings and applied for all the approvals we needed, Mike also oversaw the building work on site and dealt with the numerous problems the builder encountered without fuss.
When we decided to build a new home we gave Mike the brief which he turned into a fantastic liveable design which drew many compliments from contractors and construction professionals who visited the site. The design of the house suits my family's needs perfectly and takes advantage of the lovely views over the countryside at the back.
