Hi everyone, Hope you're all well! I recently purchased a 1930s semi detached house and plan to do a single storey rear extension for an open plan kitchen diner. The garage will also be converted into an office and I'm planning to add an en suite upstairs. Feel free to check out the attached drawings. I would love to hear your thoughts and any ideas to consider. Thanks!
Hi all, My wife and I bought and Ex-Council house to refurb and extend both for practicality and for a bit more space. The plans have been in for a while and look to go through in January now after being postponed due to the volume in our parish council. We are doing most of the work ourselves but subbing out to the skilled trades. We are fairly competent and push our limits as much as possible. I’ve got a background in Estimating Commissioning of Commercial water and air systems and then Estimating Commercial Roofing & Cladding but have jumped over to become a Trading Standards Officer… a fun conversation with trades people! (Shortly followed by a “don’t worry”!) Joining the forum for help with any areas we may get stuck on. There are plenty being thrown up as we start to scratch the surface! In fact I’ve just posted our first problem here:
Hi all, New to this but hoping I can throw the odd question out to those with more experience. The house already has a 3m single story extension done back in the 80's. The extension is sound but not very well insulated in the roof or outer wall. The original owners decided to extend the galley kitchen and to have a third room at the back. Essentially from the front living room to the back is open through 2 arches. This has resulted in the middle room being pretty useless. The plan is to knock down the galley kitchen wall and wall up the living room so the back of the house would be open plan. Barring the odd decision to extend the galley kitchen, the previous owners also decided to keep the garage to which resulted in the extension wall being angled inwards. Ideally I plan to knock down the garage and rebuild the extension wall to be straight and inline with the rest of the house.
