Case Study – House Extension
For Adam, the idea of an extension took shape when part of the decking came away at the back of the house.
We knew there was a lot of unused space in the garden. Then when the decking came away, we saw how much space was underneath. My son said ‘Why don’t we build over it?’
We came in to take initial measurements and discuss Adam’s ideas for the space. We also provided information about the planning process – what would pass and equally as important, what wouldn’t.
He did the drawings, the applications, the whole lot basically. And he always copied us in on the emails to the council so we knew what was happening.
It was an odd one, a large structure, so we had a few issues with the engineering that needed to be changed. Jaimie dealt with the Building Control Officer for us. He knew everyone involved in the project so when there were problems, which we knew there would be, they were resolved really efficiently.
As well as more space in the house, Adam has also benefited from an amazing view.
