First Floor extension on top of an old Ground Floor single storey extension to create extra bedrooms above. The existing rooms were not laid out very efficiently, without flow and defined purpose, so the entire Ground Floor was also remodelled. This provided an improved layout with a large open plan Kitchen / Diner, that was flipped around and runs the entire length of the house. Space was also reconfigured to fit in a new separate Dining Room and a new downstairs Toilet.

The Master Bedroom was altered to create a new En-suite with extra storage. Externally, the new rear roof has been split in two so the top doesn’t stick above the existing roof. A challenging scheme as the old extension was not structurally strong enough to take the new weight above. Specialist metal screw piles had to be used to underpin / reinforce the existing concrete slab, so it was strong enough + the new walls taken full height down to floor level so all walls matched in.

Problems Solved:

Co-ordination and sourcing specialist contractors to install the metal screw piles late in the programme to ensure the project was not delayed + significant cost savings to ensure the project could be delivered on budget

What our customers say

…Nathan’s creativity and imagination came as a real help.

“We weren’t sure of the potential for remodelling our entire house along with an extension so Nathan’s creativity and imagination came as a real help. He planned everything meticulously and helped out at every stage of the project, which relieved a lot of pressure that we would otherwise have had. Communication was prompt and we are over the moon with the results of the project. We’ve enjoyed working with you, you’ve been thorough, imaginative and helpful throughout the process. We would recommend you to other people.”
