This is the house which Andy Nichols extended over a number of years for his family. Over several phases it more than doubled in size. The entrance facade was originally blank and clad in render so it was reclad in brick and flint and windows were added to give some sign of habitation.

A wall was built to link the house to the new studio and give privacy to the garden. A south facing wall with a buttress is used to dry logs for the winter. Walls were added on either side of the south facade to give shelter and provide sunny spots to use throughout the day. The kitchen was designed to fit in with the cottageā€™s white painted boarding finish with elm worktops and large terracotta tiles on the floor.
