The installation of the 3.5m by 1.5m triple glazed fixed window thankfully went without a hitch despite the impending weather condition.

The window now awaits its feature PPC aluminium fascia and the timber cladding to the elevations.

New Website, New Blog

Well our last website served us well for a couple of years. But it was time for a refresh and more mobile compatibility. So today we went live with MAD-Architects 2.0.

Planning Approval - Parkhead Road

MAD have just received planning approval for our proposed renovation and extension to a bungalow on Parkhead Road, Sheffield.

The scheme involves a complete reconfiguration and renovation of the existing 1970's bungalow to create a family home for the 21st century.

When finished the bungalow will feature 4 bedrooms, including a master bedroom with ensuite and dressing room, overlooking the stunning views of the countryside.

The extension forms the new living space, including an open plan kitchen, living & dining area with expansive sliding doors openings into a new patio area, with the existing bungalow forming a quite snug.

Work is due to start in the summer and be completed in early 2016.
