Carrowlustia Co. Sligo

This project was for the extension of an existing bungalow in Carrowlustia County Sligo. The plan depth of the house was increased by extension to the rear and to the front, and an additional storey was added.

The additional storey was made using SIPS timber panel frame construction while the extensions at ground floor were extended in masonary walling as per the existing ground floor storey. Some feature rubble walling was incorporated in the design which enhances the elevations of the house.

Glazing was introduced in key positions to capitalize on the superb views the site has to offer. High levels of insulation were installed in excess of current building regulations.

Floor slabs were replaced throughout with new including full radon barrier and high levels on insulation.

Using the SEAI DEAP software, the energy rating of this house went from an E rating to a B rating, a remarkable result given the existing building fabric of the house.
