As with all 4 Point Plans's projects we started with an in-depth consultation at the clients house, followed by a survey, and preliminary drawings. Whilst the extension size was fairly straightforward the internal layout of the new living spaces required some thinking. The client did not like the living room at the front so we decided to place the lving room at back taking up the whole extension resulting in a large 4m x 5m living space with two sets of folding doors leading out on to a large deck area with pergola for shade in summer.
Alteration of the internal spaces resulted in a large open plan kitchen and diner suitable for hosting parties or family gatherings with views from the front of the house right through to the garden. The layout thus enabled a cooperative living space where all the family could live and be close together whilst still doing different things. Thus with the aid of detailed accurate drawings, we submitted a householder planning application for both the extension and loft conversion at the same time.
Whilst waiting for the approval to come through we wasted no time and fleshed out the planning drawings with building regulations information and completed the package with structural calculations with building works beginning shortly after building control approval. Whilst the loft conversion was not completed we ensured that the overall design would be suitable for a retrofit loft conversion which the owner could still complete in the future.
Thanks to our hassle-free, one-stop solution we have remained in close contact with the owner whom can't say enough good things about the layout and how everyone whom visits is amazed at the openness for such a small house. Another happy customer...
