‘I first contacted Kirsty Moore in early 2020 after viewing her website.

I needed to renovate my house and add two small extensions. When Kirsty came to see my house I noticed immediately that she was assessing the project and seeing the possibilities.

Following this first visit Kirsty produced a number of plans which we discussed in detail before deciding which one was best suited to me and my requirements. Once that decision was made Kirsty worked quickly and efficiently to make the project feasible. This included working with the regulatory authorities and obtaining the relevant Planning Permission.

The builder I subsequently engaged and his team have been complimentary about the plans and their clarity. Throughout the whole process Kirsty kept me informed of developments.

Now that the renovation is nearing completion it’s clear that Kirsty’s ideas were absolutely right for the house, preserving its character while totally modernising it.

I am absolutely satisfied with the way Kirsty has worked on my project and would have no hesitation in recommending her to any potential client.

J.Swegen, Lymington, November 2020.’

In 2012-13 Kirsty and her husband undertook their own new-build project replacing their 60’s bungalow with a cottage that genuinely enhances its New Forest location and provides an uplifting space to enjoy life from.

She personally completed all aspects of the Design and Build from Planning, Building Regulations and NHBC compliance through to detailed Specifications and Contractor’s documents as well as Project Management.  (Planning consent granted)

 

Lymington, Harvester Way – Internal Remodel

When space is at a premium really thoughtful design is essential to make our homes fit for family life.  All too often properties have been extended or re-modelled leading to compromised spaces, dark corridors, through-rooms and wasted opportunity.

This classic example illustrates how a two-storey extension, whilst adding floor space, can hugely under-deliver in terms of functional family rooms.

 The design solution delivered an open plan kitchen-dining space, replaced a walk-through space with a usable bedroom, added an ensuite and increased the size of the family bathroom – all through improved design!

“OUR BUILDING CONTRACTOR CONFIRMED THAT THE DETAILED AND ACCURATE PLANS HE WAS PROVIDED WITH MEANT HE DIDN’T NEED TO INFLATE HIS QUOTE TO CATER FOR POTENTIAL MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND LAST MINUTE ADJUSTMENTS; THIS ALONE GRANTED US A SAVING OF ABOUT 10% OF THE OVERALL BUILDING COST. THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE.”
