The bespoke kitchen cupboards make use of deeper spaces either side of chimney breast; the kids bunk bed is custom made to fit the room and made from offcuts of the ash timber balustrade; a black Valchromat timber slide is cut to size to fit on existing staircase for the children; a bright pivot ladder is added to allow access out onto the roof.
