This property was purchased at auction by Mr and Mrs Neal Cullen with a view to develop it into two semi-detached properties for themselves and their family.
We were commissioned by the family to help and advise on the structural design of the new build and remedial repairs for the conversion of the original house.
The property is located in Blackdown near Broadwindsor with views over the Marshwood Vale towards the Dorset coast. The condition of the property, when purchased, was virtually uninhabitable with a later extension requiring demolition. The work was undertaken mainly by Neal and his father in law with the help of some bricklayers.
The family lived in caravans in the garden for two years while the work was being carried out.
