What sort of house extension should I have?

Whether you are thinking about adding a loft conversion, a single-story extension to the rear or side of your house, or you want to maximise your space by adding a two-storey extension, we can help you with Building Regulation (Part A) drawings to compliment your planning proposals.
We have a wealth of experience in designing feasible structural solutions for the below extension configurations:

Why you need a plan for your home extension
Planning a trouble-free home extension does not need need to be a big deal if you get the proper help from our team at GL Design Services Ltd. We help homeowners across Croydon, London and the South East to create their dream homes.
Deciding on which part of your home should be extended can often be obvious. So if you want to expand your cramped kitchen to create a new kitchen and dining room, then a rear extension behind your existing kitchen can be the answer.
If you have the available space behind your house to accommodate an extension, it makes sense to expand into that space to give you the extra room you need. However, you need to consider any restrictions that may cause you a problem.
For example, suppose you want to add a first-floor extension to your terraced home. In that case, local planning restrictions may not allow this because there could be a risk of blocking daylight from your neighbour’s house or your extension could negatively affect their views.
Get the right plan in place before you start
We offer comprehensive structural design services for house extension projects. Our plans will consider any restrictions that might apply to your project to get your extension right the first time and your building project with go off without a hitch.
Once you have decided where you would like your extension, you can bring us in to inspect the structure of your home to ensure that your extension project is viable. Getting our advice early on can be invaluable, especially if you are unsure where your load-bearing walls are or if you will need to include structural members to support the proposed extension layout.
We can provide an expert advice that will allow you to decide about your extension. If you are struggling with your extension ideas we can recommend a reputable local architect who can advise about the ideal style and placement for doors and windows for your new extension.
