Lindsay, from Didsbury near Manchester, came to Pride Road looking to take full advantage of her kitchen- dining space. The space was North facing so it was very dark and cold.
She met with Lisa and looked at different options through the concept design workshop, in which Lisa drew plans and discussed the pros and cons of each option in real time, with an emphasis on practicality. One of her suggestions stood out to them as the right thing to do, as it left the space mainly open-plan, but allowed a room for people to hide away in if they wanted to. It also involved making use of the garage by turning it into a downstairs loo and a utility area, which she found highly useful.
She made her decisions based on the meetings they had with Lisa, and Pride Road helped her with all the legal and technical aspects of the project. Not sure whether to go ahead with the project, Lindsay’s family thought about it for a long time. A year or so later they finally proceeded with the project, which felt like a really big step, but was well worth it in the end.
They love the new kitchen-dining space as they have been able to get full use out of it and the garden, particularly during lockdown when they had to spend more time at home than they usually would. The new space is comfortable and functional, and it helped the family to survive lockdown by having individual spaces for everyone.
