How Has The Extension Improved The Home? 

The home has gained a beautiful open plan living space, which incorporates the kitchen and a dining area overlooking the garden.

The kitchen has tripled in size from the original property allowing the homeowners to more effortlessly entertain family and friends.

The aluminium bifolding doors allow easy access between home and garden, flood the dining room area with healthy daylight and create the feeling of inside-outside living.
