Single storey extension in chilham

6mx4m extension consisting of a GRP flat roof with 2 roof lanterns measuring 1200×600 which met a slate pitched roof at the front and side.

Works begun with digging the 600 x 1m footing with a traditional 450 strip foundation. It was built up to DPC with all the required damp proof membranes and insulation with a concrete floor area of which building control inspected the site at each required stage. The main walls which were 300mm wide with 100mm cavity were constructed using light weight celcon blocks internally and externally ready to take a rendered finish.The biggest feature being the 3.6m long aluminium bifold doors which created a sea of light throughout the room.

The interior work consisted of demolishing walls and inserting RSJ’s to create an open space living area. Following the completion of all building work an oak floor was laid throughout the new extension and the existing downstairs of the property. Finally to finish off the extension a bespoke kitchen was fitted with solid work tops.
