Type of Property: End of Terrace, three-bedroom and one bathroom
The homeowner was looking to renovate his property as a way of adapting the home to suit his needs now his children had moved out, whilst also adding value should he look to move on in the future.
Firstly, the home extension was worked on as there was extensive steel work necessary in order to achieve the large open-plan kitchen diner he was looking for. This meant initially taking out the side of the home, and rebuilding that portion of the house to align with the desired size and specifications of the extension. With the addition of the large scale sliding doors in place of the back wall, this gave the great effect that the garden was seamlessly connected to the extension and continuously breathed in natural light.
The loft conversion began immediately after the house extension was finished – in order to place scaffolding safely – and building work started to create a master bedroom with en-suite. In order to fit the existing shape of the house, a Hip to Gable conversion was built, which also allowed a slightly large en-suite bathroom and space for a glass balcony with French doors.
The entire project for both home extension and loft conversion was completed in approximately three months.
