Victorian home extension

When I first visited this Victorian home, the lean-to extensions at the back of the house meant it was dark, cramped and a far cry from the open-plan space the owners were yearning for.

I could see that by removing the extensions and rear wall, and then incorporating large rooflights and bi-fold doors, this house could be transformed to boast a sun-filled family room with a smart new kitchen, leading out to the garden.

This particular project did not require planning consent since it fell within the remit of permitted development. However, it did need building regulations approval.

In instances such as this, I can offer clients a basic service, which comprises measuring and drawing their existing property, proposing a design solution for discussion and refining the design, in line with the permitted development.

I can then produce a detailed drawing for building regulations, which will enable the client to find a builder.

With this type of basic service level, I often don’t need to get involved on site. However, I’m more than happy to do so and will always provide a quote, if required.
