Kent Basement Construction

Incorporated below new buildings in a combined new-build / conversion project, this basement added extra space which would have been restricted by planning policy otherwise.

Allowing a large games room, bar and cinema room complex together with plant room for the entire house this basement is like stepping into another world.

This multifaceted project involved exceptional finishes and integration of complex heating, lighting and audio systems.

At Vernacular Homes, we have built a number of basements over the years and we have held many discussions as to the merits of adding a basement or whether the additional space could be better gained elsewhere. Every project is different so it is well worth discussing with us.

The client's view...

“…We were so impressed by [VH’s] professional approach, standards of workmanship and attention to detail…

The finished development is very much a blend of our (occasionally impractical) ideals and wishes translated into a practical reality by the VH team. Their advice and ideas ranged from fundamental construction to interior design and effectively helped us to make our dreams come true.

We were consistently updated on progress throughout the project and weekly meetings were held to enable any outstanding issues or questions to be resolved.

Financial projections were updated monthly and any changes (subject to our agreement) formally communicated in updates to the project contract.

We would have no hesitation in recommending VH to anyone seeking to develop a property of character to a high level of specification.”
