The size of the plot meant that we would only be able to project out 3 metres without planning permission, but because of the size of the garden and the need for extensive additional living space, we recommended to extend 4 metres from the back of the house and managed to gain planning approval with the help of our architect - Bill Brooks.
Using our own mini-digger, foundations were dug and concreted, and brickwork built to the specification and design of the client. White UPVC frames were then installed, making it a very cost effective construction. We used our new Ultraframe roof, which also has the 'Livin Room' sections, giving the feel of an extension but importantly remaining as a conservatory.
All walls were plastered, including the 'Livin room' section which was fitted with down lighters and a dimmer switch. Under floor heating was installed to provide warmth during the cold months, meaning their new living space can be used all year round. Finally, a small patio area was laid with sleepers as a retaining wall.
