A classic example of a very popular home extension at the moment- a full width rear one storey extension. Opening up the existing rear wall of the house creates a large space for a kitchen, dining and family room space. A lean to roof is economical, and give a fantastic sense of height in the extension, with roof lights making the whole space really bright. Bi-folding or classic french doors give great views and access to the garden, and again increase the light levels in the room.
A big family kitchen and dining area, with a separate cosy living room is a really popular desire for families and couples now, a new spin on the old fashioned idea of having a table in the kitchen, being the centre of activity in the home- the heart of the house.
