Built during the 1990s, Haden House is a truly bespoke home and a flagship scheme for Fairhome. The building – situated on the outskirts of Warrington – was originally constructed as a self-contained, two-storey commercial unit but is now a home to people through supported living
When we first viewed Haden House, the building was vacant and certainly not designed to be a home. However, we could see the potential that existed within the unit – all it required was a new outlook and some careful planning.
Getting to work on the development, the team stripped out the ground and first floor of the building, removing existing toilet facilities. Loose plasterwork and block-work were removed, and a program of plastering, plumbing and electrical works were initiated.
Partitions were installed on both floors of the property, to divide up the internal space and create a collection of self-contained apartments. Each apartment was fitted with new kitchens, bathrooms, and individual boilers.
A new ceiling was fitted to the ground floor, lighting and uPVC windows were installed throughout, and cladding was improved on the rear elevation. A new boundary wall and gate were fitted to the exterior of Haden House.
