Two-storey side extension

Before and after photos
of a double storey extension

This family home needed more living space. The project involved extending the existing brickline of the recessed garage to be in-line with the front of the main house, and then further extending across the full front width of the house to incorporate a porch with pitched roof. The conversion of the garage space into the extended ground floor area created a large living space for the family to enjoy. It comprised a kitchen extension, two additional bedrooms and a downstairs shower room. Upstairs featured a new bedroom and luxury en-suite bathroom. Finally the frontage was finished with decorative chippings in place of the previous lawn.

The building extension required careful brick colour matching and the continuation of an ornamental brick-line to match the original construction.
