Prenton Extension – Case Study

One of the best ways to gain additional space and raise the value of the property is through the construction of a loft conversion. I recently worked with a client on a stunning extension that started with a partial loft conversion where they wanted to create a master suite from a small skylight extension that they already had in place. The overall value of the project was in the region of £100,000.

I designed a Dormer extension to the rear which included a beautiful balcony. A space was created for an en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.

On the ground floor the client originally had a kitchen dining area with a separate playroom. Open plan living is becoming increasingly popular as it provides a versatile, light, airy and sociable space. By removing walls and doors that separate rooms, open plan kitchen, living and dining areas provide a multi-functional space where all family members can relax and enjoy themselves with the added benefit of being able to oversee your young family.

The family wanted to create a large open-plan space that was family friendly for their two young children, allowing for them to work in the kitchen whilst keeping an eye on the children whilst they played.

The family wanted functional built-in storage areas which I incorporated into some boxed-in bench seating that would provide a multi-functional space for the play area, and general seating for socialising.

The space created allowed for lots of room for living and dining. I included bi-folding doors to open the back of the house to allow for natural light and views into the garden. The bi-fold doors opened on to a large, decked area with steps down to the grassed area.

For house extensions to make economic sense, you need to make sure the value added is greater than the cost of the project. When it comes to the design of your extension, we can discuss initial ideas, I can explain the statutory processes, give you information on fees and you take the next steps.
