We were approached by our client to prepare drawings for a new rear extension to replace an existing leaking timber conservatory, the single storey extension was to create a new family area with an enlarged kitchen area. They also required a replacement roof over the existing garage to create an additional bedroom with an ensuite.
We were appointed to gain planning and building regulation approvals only which were achieved in May 2011 and July 2011 respectively. The client already had a contractor on board so was able to begin construction as soon as approval was gained. The design was to be simple in form and fit in with the existing building whilst creating an open plan living area with good access to the garden. The existing low level hipped roof over the garage was replaced with a large gable roof with a dormer window to the front to create a new bedroom and ensuite.
