I recently photographed a completed extension in Bromley Heath, for a family who wanted to extend their existing kitchen/diner to create a family space. The existing house had a small lean to, which was original, which housed an awkward utility space.
The roof line of the existing lean to was raised, and the remaining space infilled, and this gave space for a nicely proportioned seating/play space and a more practical utility space. A small WC was also incorporated. Large skylights help make it a bright space, even on a dark day
This project was built under permitted development, avoiding the need for a planning application, ACHD sought Building Control and Wessex Water consents, and the owners did much of the work themselves, which helped reduce the costs.
The neighbouring house also engaged me to design a very similar extension (which can be seen in the photo above), which I’m hoping to return to photograph soon!
