East Cowes House Extension

This project received the support of the local town council because the 3D images of the design demonstrated its low impact on the neighbourhood and immediate neighbours. The original project was costed and came within the budget costs although change in client’s requirements lead to a new scheme being designed by Elmstone Design LLP and the obtaining of Planning Permission. The revised project has now started on site and hopefully will be nearing completion soon.

Quotes and Client Testimonials

"John Sutton is an architectural engineer – maybe a bit like Mr Spock mind-melds Frank Lloyd Wright. Deciding to hire John for what grew into a demo-rebuild of our small cottage in Ryde turned out to be pounds well-spent. We’re from the US (10 years in UK). It’s been challenging to re-learn work processes and the like in what is known here as a ‘self-build’ project. We had to trust the knowledge and judgment of a professional we hired entirely on reputation. What could go wrong? Well, it was a good decision: John as Elmstone Design took us through design and planning issues in a conservation area, gaining planning permission having listened closely to our needs whilst making the case for what is quite a change. We’re readying for next stages now. We like working with John and his work, but we’ll still make this review just 4 stars. Got to hold something til the end, don’t we?"- Yell Review 1
