Family home extended

The home owners at this property asked me to create more space for their growing family. They had a narrow kitchen with a door at the end which meant it was used as a corridor for access to their garden. The dining space was cramped and, as the dining and living space were open to each other, they felt everywhere sprawled into each other. The ground floor accommodation did not fit the needs of a growing family.

Together we designed a rear extension to their property which was across the whole of the existing building. We blocked off the existing living room and turned this into an adult space. The existing kitchen and dining rooms were opened up completely into the new extension. This created a family living, dining and kitchen space in one, whilst enjoying views into the garden. The bi-fold doors ensure the family space can be opened in its entirety into the garden. The integrated blinds in the bi-folds ensure privacy and a reduction in the suns glare.

Entering through the bifold doors…

I worked with the home owners closely to bring the project from initial concept to completion. I carried out the dimensional survey, prepared the designs and took them through the Planning Process. This was followed with the detailed specification and layouts and then the Building regulations process and out to tender to builders. We then had a pre start meeting as a team to ensure any issues were ironed out before the work began onsite. I was on hand for any queries during the build process and it was a pleasure to visit and see the completed work.

The home owners are delighted with the outcome,

Lynsey has been the best investment we made throughout the whole process. We used Lynsey’s services for design, planning, building regulations and a detailed spec. Lynsey has a huge amount of knowledge and advised us on things we wouldn’t have even thought about! She is approachable and helpful and I found her absolutely invaluable. Lynsey brought to life what we had been dreaming about, with skill and ease. She made the whole process stress free and dealt with everything on our behalf. Lynsey was exactly what we needed and I highly recommend her services.
