Two extensions to an old building helped to create a larger, more practical home fit for 21st century modern living.

The two extensions consisted of a single storey rear Kitchen infill extension to create a larger, open plan Kitchen and Dining, coupled with a separate Utility Room and ground floor Toilet. A bespoke, made to measure, timber kitchen was also installed. The side extension was for a simple and straight forward Porch but with a double height vaulted / sloping ceiling + bespoke storage.

As the house is in a conservation area, high quality external materials were used such as natural tooled stone walls + natural slate roof covering to the side Porch + bespoke timber windows and doors. Where the Kitchen extension is tucked away at the back, slightly more modern materials were used, such as a silicone render to the walls + a single ply membrane roof covering. Mock lead roll joints were specified to the roof so it looked like a traditional lead covered roof, at a fraction of the cost.

The Planning Permission process was relatively lengthy and complicated. The scheme required several alterations until the Planning Department approved the project.

Problems Solved:

Achieving Planning Permission for a complicated heritage project + tidying up and rationalising poor quality building work done in the past
