Andrew Horton – Rear Single Storey Extension – Carlton, Nottinghamshire

Andrew asked us about creating a single storey rear extension on his house, he was looking for a design that provided extra space for a dining room and a reconfiguration of the small galley kitchen to provide more space.

The space available at the rear of the property was severely limited and had a garden that sloped steeply up from the house.

We achieved the brief with a good looking double pitched extension on the rear of the house, some of the land was reclaimed from the steep garden using a retaining wall to create a level for the extension.

The property had some work carried out by a previous owner, but unfortunately the work had not provided structural steels that were suitable for supporting the upstairs walls of the house. The Design Social also provided structural calculations to allow these historic modifications to be made secure.
