Day 3: Planning for Crab Tree House
Crab Tree House, the cream house in the picture above, would like to insert bay windows into the two bedrooms at first floor level, similar to those on the ground floor are bay. The desire is to make the rooms more spacious.
It was thought best to suspend the windows so as not to interfere with the roof, they would therefore, be window seats rather than walk in bays.
The house has a prominent aspect on the riverside and is in clear view behind the Grade I Church, as you can see from the photo. It is located within a Conservation Area and there is no visible president for 1st floor bay windows in the vicinity. With his experience in this area and knowing the Planning and Conservation Officers, Paul thought it unlikely the plans would be immediately well received should the family wish to pursue the plans.
