Hi all This is my first post - I hope it's in the right place! :-) I am considering buying a ground floor flat in a small-ish block. Ignoring that I will need planning and freeholder permission (I realise neither are a given - there's no history of anybody attempting this before), is it physically possible to build a ground floor extension for a building with this many storeys? I also realise that every building and conditions are different, so this might be an impossible question to answer, but thought I'd try, as the extensions I have seen online are of buildings with less storeys. We would probably redesign the interior and likely would remove the outer kitchen and master bedroom walls as well as the wall dividing them to then create a large open plan extension. Any comments or advice are greatly appreciated. Cheers!
Hi, We're planning to build a ground floor extension to our 1960/70s terraced house, which is semi-detached at the end of the row.We have a manhole cover to the side of where we plan to build the extension and although we don't plan to build over it, we were wondering if anyone could give advice on whether the sewer pipe is public or only serves our house. Photos below. If anyone could advise the best strategy for dealing with sewers/drainage, so as not to risk any issues when creating the foundations of the new extension it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, JM. 1. This is the man cover removed. To the top left is the end of our house, the extension would continue along this line of brickwork. 2.Close up of sewer pipes. 3.Sketch showing layout of sewer and house.
