My Client appointed me to design a side extension to his property, which would remove an existing conservatory and create an open plan living space between the existing garage and house. It would also include a separate utility room and space for coats.
The existing floor plan shows the area in which the extension is to be erected, by removing the ‘Sun Room’ and shed. This is well hidden from view from the road by the existing garage.
The Client wanted the extension to have a vaulted ceiling, with a large rear dormer window facing into the garden, with a triangular window to let as much light into the room as possible. The dormer reflects the roof pitch of the other dormer windows on the same elevation. The room will have feature trusses inside.
The infill extension will sit between the garage and the house, with a pitch roof to the rear and a flat roof in the area adjoining the garage.
Commencement on site began in August 2018, with the foundations being dug 2m deep on the boundary. The clay was so compacted it was causing problems even for the digger!
The building inspector viewed the footings and is happy with the progress.
Getting ready for the sand bed, drainage in place.
