James Hough Chartered Architect Cheshire

James designed an extension to our house which extended our kitchen to twice its size and connected to a detached garage. This could have been a clunky functional extension to achieve more space but James' design not only added a great deal of workable extra room but it blended well with the rest of the house design and created a beautiful space too. We went on to sell our house and the extension wowed our viewers and made a huge difference to the property. James was really helpful and responsive through the whole procedure and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again for another project or recommend his services.
