Stunning Scunthorpe conservatory retreat

Sue and Paul Church, Crowle, North Lincolnshire

Why did they choose EYG?

  • Eager to create a stunning room to sit and enjoy garden views
  • Wanted a living space with character and charm
  • Felt the back of their wide house needed a focal point
  • Wanted to incorporate bi-fold doors into bespoke design

What did we do?

With the hands-on homeowners desperate to ensure the proportions were exactly right for their home, they considered a wide variety of styles, shapes and sizes before settling on the final design – chalking it out to ensure it would not be too small.

Having settled on a 4m x 8m layout, our construction team dug and laid the foundations before leaving them to settle and attention then turned to building the dwarf walls.

The installation of glazing let the structure to take shape, before the addition of beautiful bi-fold doors and one of the biggest Hybrid roofs we have ever designed – featuring four triangular and two rectangular glazed panels in an amazing vaulted ceiling.

Removing the patio doors and a wall which separated the new conservatory from the dining room quickly turned the new living space into a stunning focal point, which draws the eye from everywhere at the property's rear.

“The vaulted ceiling looks spectacular and everyone who’s seen it has been really impressed. We love it. I’d recommend the Hybrid roof to anyone because it lets in lots of light and makes it feel like an extension," explained Sue, of Willowbrook Farm in Crowle, near Scunthorpe.

“We also love the fact the whole space is a focal point from the kitchen, dining room and the garden – which is what we wanted from the outset.

“Incorporating the bi-fold doors into the design creates a space where we can sit and enjoy the garden in any weather. When they’re open, they bring the outside in and make it a lovely place to sit and relax. It’s stunning.”

How long did it take?

  • From construction to completion, the whole project took two months of on-site work with a few days off in between to allow time for settlement.
  • Interestingly, the initial design phase took almost as long as the build itself because of the homeowner’s close attention to detail and their desire for a perfect finish.
  • Homeowner Sue added: “We took our time before deciding on the final design, but it paid off because the final finish is simply stunning."
