Renovated and extended 1960s house in West SussexContemporary Exterior, Surrey
New thermally insulated timber cladding not only improves energy efficiency but updated the exterior of this tired 1960s detached house.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Make a connectionThe cladding on this extension was also used to update the original 1960s house. The black staining is inspired by the weatherboarding on West Sussex barns, and the cladding is insulating, boosting the home’s energy efficiency. Think about adopting the same tactic if your house could do with a 21st century makeover – timber cladding can break up a less-than-lovely façade.
Clad itAfter…The same house with an asymmetrical extension, striking black cladding and a more interesting composition of windows, including one huge glazed opening, now feels architectural and much more special.
