Two story extensions
A two storey extension could be the perfect way to add value to your home, dramatically increasing the volume of the property and adding useful living space to different floors.
It can also be a useful way to conserve your garden, rather than encroaching too far into outside space.
If a loft extension is included then you could also make good use of otherwise 'dead' space in the roof.
Two storey extensions generally come out at the side or rear of the property - Sevenoaks Plans would be delighted to discuss all options with you during the initial consultation. Please contact us.
Ground floor extensions
If you're looking to gain some space on one floor, perhaps to increase the size of a kitchen, or to create additional space for a growing family, then a ground floor extension could be the perfect solution.
A side extension, perhaps incorporating a side-return can be a great option if your garden space is at a premium. Alternatively if you would like to bring your garden into your living space, then use building materials such as glass bi-fold doors to gain a sense of outdoor living.
There are many creative ways of extending the ground floor of your property and Sevenoaks Plans is on hand to work through the different permutations with you.
Loft conversions can be a very economical way of adding considerable value to a property via an additional bedroom or two and extra bathroom facilities. Whilst not all properties are suitable for this type of extension, certain obstacles like ceiling height can be overcome by dropping the ceiling of the floor below for example.
Whilst loft conversions used to be quite predictable, now they are increasingly light and airy as architects become more imaginative with their use of materials.
There is an added advantage that you can continue to live in the property whilst the work is going on.
If you are considering a loft extension but are unsure how to proceed then please contact us for a free consultation where we can work through your options.
Many older properties are equipped with a garage that is too small for a modern car, or may be so large that a conversion is an irresistible option. Often adjoining the main residence, a garage can easily become a seamless addition to your living space, for example a utility room or a shower or even a small playroom.
A garage conversion can often be done without planning permission, under Permitted Development, although it's always best to make sure. Sevenoaks Plans would be delighted to offer you advice on what your options are.
