Extension in Cumbria

Extension: The Woodlands in The Lake District National Park

Day Cummins carried out a measured survey, prepared the design and submitted and received Building Regulations approval for this development.  The client is delighted with the results and how the project has provided comfort and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside

3D Modelling

We have the capability to develop 3D modelling for our clients from 2D sketches. This gives a much more realistic sense of perspective compared to the flat drawings. Contact us for more information here.

Paul and Janice Eldridge. Lingy Bank, Portinscale

”We would highly recommend Day Cummins Ltd. We have used their services for our renovation and extension project including Surveying, Architecture and Project Management. They have provided a professional, thorough and expert service In a friendly and approachable manner.”

Nick Polmear , The Lake House Project

“We have used Andy West and his team at Day Cummins on several occasions, including latterly for planning, building site approval and house design for a high end new home. We were extremely happy with the professionalism, creativity and knowledge of both Andy and his staff. We found Andy easy to communicate with, particularly through a contentious planning process which was handled head-on by him personally, providing a stress-free project from start to finish. I have no hesitation in providing this testimonial and look forward to using his services again in the future.”
