Post Office Renovation & Extension Plans

by Build It
23rd May 2016

Darren Murphy and his partner Natalie Wylie transformed a neglected post office into the five bedroom luxury home of their dreams.

They decided to keep the old post house, with its quaint touches of period character, and instead increase its footprint with a large, modern brick-and-block extension.

This approach doubled the building’s depth, while a second storey was added to complete the transformation.

It took a lot of thought to tie in the new extension with the original 19th century cottage, both structurally and stylistically, and all while the couple were living there.

The project was undoubtedly a success however and Darren and Natalie are delighted with their lavish new home.
