Sporting stunning views of the Torquay beach, Adrian has managed to create a hidden nirvana out of a rundown 1950s bungalow. The resulting home bears no resemblance to the original property and is a perfect example of what can be achieved with a touch of ingenuity and a lot of dedication.
As a former roofing contractor, Adrian did most of the design and specification himself, only calling in an architect to complete the drawings and ensure the new roof would meet the current roofing standards.
“The entire roof structure was raised by 1.8 meters to make room for two bedrooms, both with en-suites, a dressing room and extra storage. I wanted to use the Mini Stonewold because I was trying to create a contemporary feel to the house and these particular tiles complemented the vision I had perfectly.”
Adrian Gillard, Devon Homeowner and former roofing contractor
