Our clients wanted to extend the ground floor space to create an open plan kitchen and dining space. Our solution was to demolish the former coal store, which was used as a utility space (taking up half the width of the rear wall) and extend out into the garden. By doing this we were able to open the back of the house completely and extend the kitchen and dining areas into the new space. With intelligent layout planning, we were also able to integrate a pantry into the design.
The project was completed in summer 2021 by RP Superstructures. The clients are delighted with the result as it has been a life changing transformation of the house and has future-proofed the family for the coming decade.
After a period in the property, the clients decided to extend the house to create more spaces for a growing family.
The brief was to use the plot in such a way to enlarge living spaces without encroaching too much into the back garden.
The proposal was to extend the first floor over the garage and for a single storey rear extension, thereby creating 40 sqm of additional gross external area to the side and rear.
As the project was in a Flood Risk Zone, the application required a Flood Risk Assessment.
Planning was approved in July 2020 and the build was completed in April 2021, on time, and within budget.
The client was delighted that the scheme had achieved everything they had wanted it to.
We were able to open the back of the house completely and extend the kitchen and dining areas into the new space.
