It is not just large extensions that can make a big difference to a house. This extension is just 3m deep and 6m wide (within Permitted Development guidelines) and has completely changes how the home owners live in their house.
The existing property had a small kitchen that barely had space for more than one person at a time with separate living-dining room that left little space for socialising (an important factor of the young couples’ lifestyle).
The extension has created a new larger kitchen with space for a permanent dining table, this opens out onto the garden via bi-folds doors. The extension flows into the existing living room which now feels much more generous as it no longer has a dining area in it. The old kitchen has been transformed into a music room / occasional guest room and we even managed to squeeze in a downstairs toilet.
