Double Storey extension in North Somerset


The newly extended house

It’s been a while since I posted anything, it’s been a busy six months- but I’m hoping to catch up with several older projects to share here more frequently.

The first is a single and double storey extension in North Somerset. The owners had previously tried to get permission for a larger first floor extension, but this had been rejected by the planning department, twice, and once under appeal. The planning department objected to the proximity of the first floor extension to a neighbouring property, and the owners asked me to have a look a look at it and see what might be possible.



Through careful design and analysis of the limitations of the site, I was able to propose a large single storey ‘wrap around’ rear, side and front extension, creating a larger kitchen, diner and living space, along with a study/gym space, and a larger porch/entrance.

To the first floor, a double storey rear extension was designed to create a large master bedroom, and a modest side extension gave enough room for the owner’s to create an ensuite, which gave them everything they’d wanted from their original scheme, but in a format that would satisfy the planning department.

The application sailed through planning, and I also sought Wessex Water and Building Control approvals. As you can see from the photos the house was in a very delipidated condition when the owners bought it, and they have worked tirelessly to renovate it into the modern, light, home it is now.
