Self Build

Childs Self Build

Walters Architects have a client who are converting their existing garage into a granny annex and doing all (or most) of the construction works themselves. We have assisted in the Planning Permission and Building Control Application but the client has taken the responsibility for everything else.

We can’t tell you how impressed we are at their determination, ability and skill being demonstrated by the first time new builders.

Take a look at their blog (also very impressive) and be inspired.

Walters Architects would just like to wish them continued success and hope the rest of the build goes as well as the initial stages. Good luck guys, brilliant stuff.

Interior Design

eg trent house visualWalters Architects have just finished an interior for an old Well House in Leicestershire. We have reinstated the old well wheel and and stripped all the walls backed to brick. We’ve incorporated a couple of contemporary elements including a new ‘secret’ storage unit and a ‘secret’ paneled door to the out buildings. The clients are really happy and so are we.

LoRes-1736

Walters Architects are working on another small timber framed kitchen/dining extension. It will be similar to the one attached (remember it from 2011?) but this time the corner doors will be replaced with a more conventional bi-fold. We are incorporating yet another (we love them) frameless roof light as well . We like timber frame/clad buildings, next time we want to go BIG!

The works are to a listed building and within a conservation area. We feel an award nomination coming on.

Walters Architects are preparing a planning application to extend an existing nursing home in Charnwood. The client has already commissioned us start works on a second home in Maidenhead. Looking forward to them both being completed. DSC_0016

Stable Block & Menage

by Kevin Walters

Walters Architects are working on yet another stable block only this time we are including a Menage. The practice has been involved in a few equestrian buildings now and are really enjoying it. This particular project will be in two phases and will include a hay store, general store and a tack room. Cant wait to get started.  WA 359 model 01 WA 359 model 02 WA 359 model 03 WA 359 model 04 WA 359 model 05 WA 359 model 06
