Firtree Cottage  Award Winner

A traditional Suffolk building designed by a local retired architect, Firtree Cottage reflects vernacular local architecture at its best, with a beautiful, hand-crafted porch enclosing the front door. The house was conceived with high energy efficiency in mind, to be environmentally friendly, reduce household running costs and guarantee low maintenance costs for the future. A bright conservatory adds another dimension to the already interesting construction of this building.

The timely completion of this project enabled our customer to spend Christmas in their new home.
