aluminium framed sliding doors that really bring the outside in,” says Howard. “It is truly the heart of the house.” Hardwearing Dekton countertops have been


paired with handless kitchen units to establish a sleek, unfussy finish. Grey oak engineered timber floors have been laid atop underfloor heating. However, the highlight is, of course, the view. “Being able to cook, turn around and have that view right there is incredible. We’ve captured the feeling that we wanted in that principal family space,” says Howard. Sitting above the kitchen-diner on the first floor of the extension is the master suite, which is connected to its own balcony for Howard and Leanne to make the most of the far-reaching vistas. “We wanted to create the feeling that we were on holiday in a hotel, in one of those rooms where you have the luxury of more space than what you really need,” says Howard. The ensuite also exudes an opulent, hotel-like feel thanks to the spacious walk-in shower and elegant freestanding tub.


FINAL REFLECTIONS Now the project is complete, Howard is ecstatic with the results and has no regrets about taking the scheme on. “Looking back, one of the best days was when the kitchen went in,” he says. “Once the plaster was up on the walls I could really see everything starting to come together.

Howard was keen to create some distinction between the original parts of the house and the extension


about the finished house. “Overall, it’s everything we wanted. In terms of the whole build and the layout, I think we cracked it. It’s as good as we could have done it.” Having worked with Base on so many projects


through his construction firm, Howard enjoyed the experience of working with Harry on his own project. “We’ve got a good relationship, so it was fun,” he says. “The advice Harry gave was very good throughout.” Though Howard loves living in the house, he


hasn’t ruled out the prospect of doing another project in the future. “Next time I’d like to build a home from scratch – Leanne goes mad at me because I am always looking for the next opportunity,” he says. “To some extent, a renovation always holds you back somewhat in what you’re able to achieve. However, it’d need to be a showstopper of a plot to beat what we’ve got here.” 
