Not everyone planning a renovation can afford to have an architect to do the heavy lifting for you. But if you decide to spend the money you get the enjoy the magic of seeing your new house rendered out into some pretty lifelike.
There are some ambitious ideas here: creating much more flow between the house and the garden; putting in a natural filtration pool; and putting in large, glass sliding doors and windows across most of the front of the house.
The idea is to then turn what is currently a cottage/gym into the master bedroom, with a new storey and viewing deck (Craighall Park actually has some lovely views if you can find the height and position). So here we will put in a wide set of steps and again create a glazed room that enjoys the views onto the garden (which isn’t visible here but which is lovely with established trees).
So the pondering now begins. Oh, and the quoting – which no doubt is going to curtail much of this 3D revelry.
