Single Story Extensions.

Does it feel like your downstairs living area is too cramped, are you and your family constantly on top of each other and not using the space you already have? What’s the best type of extension for my home? A single story extension is the answer to your prayers. Its pretty self-explanatory, but we offer this service if you’re looking to add on an extra room to your downstairs. For example, this could be adding on an additional bedroom, living room, play area or bathroom. It’s up to you, anything that you feel would open up some more space for you and your family. Small extensions like these do not require planning permission, this speeds up the process of building your extension. Single-Story rear extensions.

This is slightly different to a single story extension as its expanding on the space you already have, instead of building a completely new room. This is most likely used in the kitchen, creating an open plan space bringing more light into the room, completely revamping your kitchen.  Why not talk to our design team today and create your dream open plan kitchen, establishing a more family orientated feel to the house. This kind of extension doesn’t dramatically increase the overall size of the house; therefore, no planning permission is required.
