A two storey extension on a very narrow site to provide a new bedroom, living room and WC / wetroom with full disabled facilities at Ground Floor and a new extended office / Library space at First Floor including a feature Juliet balcony.

Rear Single Storey Extension, Hardwicke, Gloucester.

 

A new single storey full width extension at the rear of the property provides for a new enlarged south facing family kitchen / diner with breakfast bar, with vaulted ceilings & Velux roof windows overhead, while  a pair of French doors provide easy access out into the garden.

 

A late change to the design allows for a new 'sunroom' to be added in place of the proposed conservatory providing for all year around enjoyment of the garden through large format landscape windows, and through another set of French doors, and another pair of Velux roof windows. Particular successful is the brick match achieved through mixing on site two different brick manufacturers products to achieve a seamless joint to the existing brickwork.

Small Rear Single storey Extension, Abbeydale, Gloucester.


A new single storey masonry extension at the rear of the property provides for a new Dining Room filled with light from two overhead in-plane roof windows and one large casement window. Access out into the small garden is provided via glazed outward opening French doors.  

 

Although modest in size, by simply replacing the same building mass and footprint of the existing unusable conservatory, this extension adds much needed 'all year round' habitable space to the ground floor of this single bedroom dwelling and almost doubles the available living area at ground level.

Single Storey Extension and Alterations, Bentham, Gloucester

Downstairs a new single storey rear extension provides an enlarged family kitchen, new Dayroom, and new Utility space. The existing downstairs cloakroom is enlarged with the inclusion of a shower. 

 

Special features include wide opening BI-fold doors to the dayroom and three overhead Velux windows within the higher sloping roof line. Upstairs the odd 3 bed layout is further rationalised by swapping the smallest bedroom and large bathroom spaces over. This allows the third bedroom to enjoy the larger picture window and more space, while the new bath & shower room nestles comfortably under the sloping roof of the smaller second dormer.

Loft Conversion, Quedgeley, Gloucester.

 

A small but perfectly formed project to convert an existing truss rafter loft space into a new fourth bedroom, by the inclusion of a new steel and timber purlin structure, a new small four winder timber stair and 3 no in plane velux rooflights to provide a fantastic new space for a teenage daughter.

 

This was all achieved within the existing volume of the house without the need to remove the roof during construction and where living space was at a premium.
