“”We own modest post-war (ie: cream brick) house and have been struggling to work out how to best to renovate/extend it to suit our family’s needs. Our recent Dr Retro House Call was incredibly helpful.

Alistair gave us great advice to help clarify what may and may not be possible within our budget. He identified a few key maintenance issues and has given us a much stronger sense of direction for how we might proceed.”

“We are really pleased with the elevations you’ve designed. There is something that feels so ‘right’ about it- which obviously means that you have done a great job of incorporating the old and the new. We love the way you have brought in the stackbond brickwork. The ‘new’ house works so well as a whole unit- a lovely change from the existing house with the 1970’s box extension shoved on the back.  We are still feeling a little hesitant about the terrace at the front. We like the way you have done it- and agree it looks really well balanced with the carport.”
