The owners of Beagle Cottage undertook a large project to revitalise the run down property and create a home with a self contained two bedroom guest annex. Shires demolished a large extension to create a new two storey timber framed structure incorporating a day room with stunning coastal views. The building utilised external insulation to maximise the living space and conserve energy. The team reused many materials found on site to create an eclectic and individual home. Shires worked closely with architects The Bazeley Partnership.
