What Was Done?
The existing conservatory at the back of the property was removed and the garden was cleared with new foundations casted.
The walls were raised, before a fibreglass roof was built on top. The back wall of the house was then removed to create a large open plan living space.
The stunning 6-meter extension contains a kitchen and dining area, featuring kitchen island with cooking facilties, three VELUX INTEGRA rooflights and full-size bifolding doors.
How has the Extension Enhanced the Home?
It has added almost twice the living space as was previously on the ground floor.
The new open plan living area and proximity to the garden has created the feeling of the house and garden became almost one space.
Having three roof windows ensures natural daylight reaches all corners of the space, drastically reducing the need for artificial lighting.
The electric rooflights can also fill the room with healthy ventilation and at the press of a button.
