External Insulation Remodel

External insulation wraps the whole house and makes the transition seamless, energy efficient and future proofed.
Reimagining the layout created new spaces and brought to life older rooms. The highlight is the beautiful, custom built apex glazing, demonstrating Sycamore’s expertise in fine finish, quality carpentry and craftsmanship.

A Kitchen for Entertaining

We will never get tired of opening a space up for new possibilities. Here we’ve taken a dated kitchen and neighbouring space, remodelled to create a wonderful modern kitchen, doubling our client’s entertaining space. Widening the patio door to allow for large double sliding doors brings the outside in. We’ve added glazed internal doors to introduce natural light to the interior rooms and hall. The new laminate floors pull it altogether. Speak to us about transforming your space to use it more efficiently everyday.

Attic Conversion and Extra Space

Extra space made special, upstairs and down in this project for an attic conversion and a garden room extension.
Bringing the outside in, we created a room for all seasons, a new living space for relaxing and making the most of the sunny aspect. The feature of this year round room is a high, long window bringing in plenty of light.
Making double use of extra space we converted the attic for a spare bedroom come hideaway. Incorporating spray foam insulation in the roof rafters for sound proofing and energy saving, this space is now warm and very quiet. The beautiful and imaginative glass balustrade connects the original and new upstairs rooms while adding yet more light and a sense of space and openness.

Kitchen Revival

An extension wasn’t necessary here but the kitchen itself was due an overhaul. Updating the appliances and tweaking the layout slightly to improve usability made all the difference. Behind the renovation scenes we dry-lined the room to improve insulation and installed Velux roof glazing to improve natural light. Beautiful granite worktops are by Miller Brothers Stone.
The result is a slick and efficient remodel, with an abundance of storage, the addition of a breakfast bar and lighting to set it all off.
As always, our clients were delighted with the very high standard of workmanship.

Complete Home Renovation

This 70’s bungalow has been brought bang up-to-date with a total renovation and energy upgrade. Our clients focused on insulation throughout, new heating system, electrical upgrade, remodelled bathrooms featuring bespoke cabinetry, storage solutions and all the important finishes…And of course a beautiful new kitchen. Our signature pocket doors allow separation as required between the cosy living room and open kitchen/diner.  A home much improved thanks to expert guidance, quality carpentry and fine finishing.

Two storey extension & reconfiguration

Adding more rooms is one thing but re-configuring the existing to make the most of the new is where the real work is. This two storey side extension introduces well-proportioned rooms for a main bed upstairs and living room downstairs, with new glazing to match the existing. A clever reconfiguration of the awkward entrance and narrow stairwell became a welcoming hall leading upstairs to a bright open landing. We added a modern bathroom by converting the box bedroom. The real difference came with the addition of a roof light over the landing to bring in much needed light and a sense of space and height. So everything just works better now. Updated services and insulated walls mean it’s more energy efficient too. Last but not least, the unused side passage became a new storage shed for all the outdoor gear.

Let There Be Light

Clever thinking here between our clients and their architect around reconfiguring this two bed terrace back to three. The home feels rejuvenated and everything has it’s place and purpose. They’ve achieved an overall sense of space and flow throughout and a terrific paint job brings it all together.
The box room had previously been turned into a bathroom but our clients needed the bedroom back. By stealing a little of the main bed, the architect was able to create a landing and new bathroom and return the third bedroom. Much-loved original doors were matched to retain the character. By replacing the solid wall with a bannister we opened up the landing to allow movement between the new spaces and of course we added light! Lots of light! 
The new bathroom is bang up-to-date and feels spacious. A skylight is positioned over the bath so that light is diffused over the sink and mirror rather than being directly over it. 
Downstairs we widened the double doorway to create a better flow from kitchen to dining room and on to the back garden. The half wall maintains a little separation without needing to remove a load bearing wall and so did not require steel works. This minor but clever alteration improves functionality and flow and generally enhances and modernises the space.

Improvement Ideas Brought to Life

Often space is the issue but not this time. However, a few things needed some attention and reconfiguration in this family home. Difficult to heat and keep warm, we started by dry lining the external walls, insulating the floors upstairs and upgrading the heating system. The one thing missing for this family was an extra shower for busy mornings. We turned the cramped office & neighbouring WC into a brand new shower room downstairs. The original 70’s staircase was given a make over by John, The Handrail Man (handrailman.ie). He worked with the clients to design a bannister with an oak handrail and glass panels. Bright and welcoming.
